The Hungry Man and the Recipe Book

A man once found a recipe

For how to cook a single pea.

All ‘sauté this’ and ‘char-grill that’

And ‘trim the pea of all its fat.

Then leave five hours in marinade

Of saffron-scented lemonade,

And bake it with some donkey’s cheese

At quite precisely four degrees’.

The man read all. He scratched his head.

Then simply ate the book instead.
