… Requiem for a best before date.
I had a pleasant peasant loaf, for my evening meal,
A slice of bread, a bowl of soup, not really a big deal,
A bowl of soup ready from a packet,
One that was vacuum packed in quite a fancy jacket,
Tomatoes on the label, roasted peppers in addition, Organic says the label, not one to cause contrition
A bowl of soup a slice of bread, butter for completion
A little salt and pepper, to give flavour with rendition
Soup and pleasant peasant bread taken for the sup,
Was in a bowl, medium, posing as a cup.
