There’s been trouble at Mill this morning

the chaos has been obvious to see

the cook in the kitchen is flummoxed

as someone has messed up works tea

See the barmpot of the mill came a calling

to see what their having for lunch

and he’d switched the lamb leg for smoked haddock

he wasn’t the brightest of the bunch

So chef on his toes he went upwards

a salvage job were required

and he raided the spices in cupboard

in order to get inspired

he mashed up the tatas and onion

and flaked in the fish good and true

along with the veg for the hotpot –

the stuff he spared for the stew

Once all mixed – he dusted with flour

and fried of the roundels in fat

and the off cuts – he put in a stone bowl

and handed to the mill owners cat

Workers enjoyed their fishcakes

they enjoyed their taste of the sea

and was nice wi some capers and sauce

eaten by all for their tea

And the Lamb leg was hung in the pantry

wi a note for all to observe

“Please don’t touch – this lamb for tomorrow”

“Its going in the stew which i’ll serve”
