At dinner for a start,
I ate a very fresh coconut.
Fearing my stomach upset
Ate a nice vinaigrette,
Then I ate a cake,
My mother baked.
To prevent constipation,
And for good digestion,
Rare sort of cheese I ate.
I ate a banana for a bet.
And to avoid the gases,
I ate some hens with lettuce.
To have a very deep sleep
I ate a very cheap sheep.

Anolini – pasta shells stuffed with meat
And cooked in broth, is what we’re eating;
Steam rises from plates but there’s no speaking,
We sip Chianti to moderate the heat
The first to break silence admits defeat;
Parmesan a generous sprinkling,
Grated black pepper our noses crinkling;
Each Christmas a ritual we repeat.
This dish from the mountains of Ital...

One day I'll meet you In that place!!
I don't take drugs
I tried a couple times
So I can tell you what it feels like
I don't drink
Probably all the sips I've ever had
Could amount to 2 glasses of white wine and those sambuca shots when I was 17yrs old!
I love dancing
I don't seem to do it much
But I love moving
That I do everyday with Yoga
I love fashion and...

Everytime I bite you
It spreads a lot of sensational
You shake my tongue
Your shape is sensual
I close my eyes to enjoy you
Your yellow jacket shines through my mind
Your amazing taste slides into my soul

They tell me that my sandwiches are,
a pointless phrase,
by a box designer,
‘Made by hand’, would do for me.
(which means someone grafted, to learn the apprenticed skills, to do a trade,
made in centuries to perfection),
but a sarnie,
put on bread,
by a plastic gloved,...

In the morning
make sure I calculate
Flat packet grains compress
into calibrated measure,
To be levelled
With milk added to twice the degree,
Placed in microwave,
A minute of vibrational rotation.
Returned for half the spell of time.
Seed topping on the milky mass,

Eric is an intern, yes he’s doing this for free
headset wrapped around hot ears
counting all the crates of beers
ripped jeans show his puny knee.
Backstage riders take the piss!
Clipboard says an item’s amiss
The schedule’s tight; he’s been up all night
Too late to get it to the concert site!
Budgets are exceeded; the helipad’s all booked
Dressing rooms are ready; just hope it’s overl...

I’ll gather the Cockles from Red Wharf Bay
Best soaked overnight in salt water they say
Then boil them in water that is fresh from the tap
Then simmer, five minutes, they open no crap
A bowl with some milk and the Cockles go in
Then stir with your hand like they’re having a swim
Remove and then place them in self-raising flour
Once coated, then sieve. This starter’s ...

Oh how I miss the Northern Charm
Builders' Tea and Bacon barm
Pie ’n’ peas and Cheshire cheese
Drivers that stay calm
People speak without a plum
Ecky thump and ee by gum
Tripe and Onions, Granny’s bunions
Boddies Bitter bites yer bum
Cheshire cats the grinning mousers
Tacchini wearing scally Scousers
West Pennine shower, Blackpool Tower
Our backyard and ...

"Unload!.... safety catch, pouch, magazine off..
(From the range we smell the scoff)
"Clear, ease springs"
The Sergeant sings
Time to queue up at the trough
There's nothing quite like the old 'Range Stew'
Two rounds of bread with a nice hot brew
From the mess tin
I'm not jestin'
Made by chefs who have no clue
Soft boot shuffle with your mate
No place here...

I don’t know when it started
When food became an issue
I remember how life was
I was diagnosed as dyslexic
After my Mum sent me for a private test
Although the School didn’t want to accept it
They didn’t want to help
Budget issues, staffing and resources
Excuses, excuses, excuses
My Mum fought their disbelief
Craving the help and guidance I needed
I heard ju...
