An Invitation

You give me the eye
What? What’s up!
No roasting pan, no rotisserie
No deep fryer, no wok
What’s the plan!
You invited me for dinner
I paused to consider
Funny, so it seems
But the fat just hit the pan
And I, have other plans

  4. I've been to dinner parties like that. It's hard to excuse yourself when you're the gust of honour.
