Bubble 'n Squeak

Is there anything finer than mashed potatoes Mixed with cabbage, a mountain of joy Scrumptious with globs of bad-for-you butter And sprinkled with parsley, oh boy! Constantly dream bout this scrumptious delight Sure sends me to the moon with glee Don't need no ham or carrot and pea medley Just blobs of butter if you please Don't want none of that Beef Wellington stuff That fine old English tradition With boiled potatoes oh how uninspiring Gonna pass it with your permission Good old “bubble 'n squeak” is what they call it Can't think of another dish finer Just a simple old guy with a simple old taste A down to earth kind of a diner So serving me that stuff for brekkie, or din-din Guaranties my friendship for life With enormous globs of bad-for-you butter Just a fork, no need for a knife! © Jack Ellison 2013

    I've never had mashed potatoes with cabbage before, but I sure have had it with mounds of butter...that makes the mashed potatoes very awesome! My family is a mashed potato family, we all love them, just like you do! We have another similarity now with this love of mashed potatoes my friend! I loved this incredible poem that you have written here this morning! What a masterpiece, quite the wonderful write my happy friend, very delightful (both the poem and the mashed potatoes), Great Work!!
