 The Dodo's Larder Inventory


Minces and quinces and pies of all shapes,

Plum Duffs and Oysters and Stilton with grapes;

Mustards, Custards, suets and doughs,

Gammons and salmons, caviars and roes;

There were layers of tablet and short-breads in jars,

Tea cake and seed cake and chocolate in bars;

Turkeys on bandstands and sweet-breaded ham,

Conserve, preserve, marmalade and jam;

There were Syrups and treacles fit for a judge,

Everton toffees and Orkney fudge;

Puddings in basins, trifles, blancmange,

Lobsters and mussels and plump Norfolk prawns;

There were pears in aspic and Armagnac prunes,

Gingers, mints and macaroons;

Chipolata sausage, salami, baloney,

Oxtail, Lobster and Minestrone;

Chestnuts and stuffing and Cheeses galore,

And (he finally ran out of rhyme) much, much, much,

much, much, much - more.
