CCCLIX - The Dinner

.

Magpie Tales has the above photo as a prompt.


The Dinner

The table was set in a formal array
They sat together in a remote sort of way.
“Nice forks” she said “I do like a nice fork”.
But if he heard her he didn’t show it.

Chorus
Poor, poor lady, what’s she going to do?
She burns with a fire

Of passionate desire
But the message is not getting through,
Getting through,
The message is not getting through.

Protocol said she could not speak her mind
This left her tied in an emotional bind.
“Nice roll” she said “I do like a nice roll”.
But if he heard her he didn’t show it.

Chorus

Asparagus was served in a sauce Hollandaise
It did little to help relieve her malaise.
“Nice stalks” she said “I do like a nice stalk”.
But if he heard her he didn’t show it.

Chorus

Then came a roast with gravy and crackling
It failed to easy the emotions she was tackling.
“Nice pork” she said “I do like a nice pork”.
But if he heard her he didn’t show it.

Chorus

The butler place the dessert on the table
And passed her a note, to meet in the stable.
“Nice trifle” she said “I do like a nice trifle”.
But if he heard her he didn’t show it.

Chorus

Her cheeks had developed a rosy bloom
She said goodnight and slipped from the room.
“Nice butler” she said “I do like a nice butler”.
But if he heard her he didn’t show it.

  6. He didn't show it because his mind was on his plan for a dalliance with one of the serving wenches. In the stable.

    This will be "interesting."
