Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

Before you order your Bombay duck
And start to demolish the dish
What you're getting for your buck
Is nothing more than dried fish

and when you request Welsh Rabbit
all you get is the cheese!

Maggie May said...

There is no such duck as the Bombay type
It's nothing more than a lot of hype.,
It turns out to be a bit of a fish
Presented fancy on a dish.
Though it probably did come from Bombay
They were running low on the meat one day
So they got a fish, said, "That will do".
Did any one notice? Only YOU!

This Bombay Duck smells a little fishy.
When the last diner was done did you wash the dishy?

I am just too tired and too stressed to be creative.
One week left and then I'm FREE!

I don't like duck, so I doubt I'd order it anyway, haha! But thanks for the heads up.

Well, if it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's a FISH!!

Better to order the Peking duck
It's a dish that's never-fail.
But it it does, don't lose heart
Next time order quail.
