Plum

Plum

Master jack horner’s favourite fruit

who when he was younger liked it to boot

served up with custard and pastry in a pie

but now he is older, new recipes he’ll try

Putting the fruit inside a pan

with spices and vinegar, a sauce is the plan

to serve with a roasted duck for his tea

served up with rice for the whole family

Fragrance of roasted duck in the air

mingles with plum jam and star anise fair

picked from the garden, the purple fruit

now cooking in pan for dinner to suit

But one or two plums are never enough

and the one’s from the market are too soft or too tough

so while duck is cooking, Jack is running amuck

picking up garden plums for his duck
