Food, glorious, food, thou art so flavourful
With chicken and salmon teriyaki
Sashimi, caviar, tea, we can’t grumble
Spring rolls, salad, part of our food spree
Thou art so savoury, not spicy
With seaweed and cucumber, so pleasant
Edifying, too as we eat with glee
We took our time, enjoying each moment
Shall we compare thee to other foodstuff?
Thou art so heavenly if you ask us
Appreciating thou, we can’t get enough
We give each other treats, not so much fuss
We are looking forward to the next trip
For a change, we might go for fish and chips*
