ALL YOU CAN EAT AT HI BUY PART ONE

My friend and I, across the State
from booneysville just to relate
a bgger city ~ climate fast
ours slow, so's that we make things last!

The salad bar, our favorite trek
all you can eat ~ don't make a show
We have to stop, it's neck in neck
the people wandering to & fro!

My friend, the treat, I was surprised
she filled my plate up ~ watching eyes,
the Cashier weighing in my prize
it's by the pound ~ they do surmise!

I hardly picked ~ just ate the soup
a little here and there, I thought
the spinach, carrotts, olives bright
just simple fun ~ my friend in sight!

It seems she picked "all you can eat"
the tray was full ~ not to defeat
her kindness ~ carry out lid snapped tight
just take it home ~ eat late tonight!

My friend so happy ~ finished hers
$7.50 for the plate at best
She paid upfront ~ I was demur
not to seem awkward ~ her treat fest!

We poised to leave ~ I had my tray
a mound of woman ~ interferred,
it was the cashier to inspect
"You can't take that ~ you didn't pay?"

    Oh dear!!! I hope you sorted things out. "All You Can Eat" doesn't seem to encourage keeping the weight off people, hmmm.
