I'll Pull Up a Chair: after 'Please Pull Up a Chair' by Becca Teagan

What, pull up a chair now, and sit down with you? That’s a lovely idea, I like it, I do! I’m due for a break and the boss, he won’t care. Yes! Hold on a moment, I’ll pull up a chair! Now as for that salad, well . . . I’d rather not I’m not much on rainchokes and wassava’s hot! A sharkflower topping? No, let me suggest Our Brazzul Bean Sampler, now that is the best! Oh, this is great fun, but I’m sorry to say We’re all out or lardines, at least for today. But you’re right, it won’t matter what food we eat Just sitting beside you is such a good treat. Do you come in here often to the Cat Hat Café? (So sorry, that long name’s just too hard to say) Do you still have some room for that cragberry ice? On a slice of green muffin, now that would be nice! What’s that you say, you’ll be staying a week? Then you must join us Sunday for some Hide-n-I’ll-peak! Thank you for sharing this time and your lunch. Will you join me tomorrow for a chat and some brunch? after "Please Pull Up a Chair" by Becca Teagan

Fab! & cool that you were inspired by Becca's poem. Dean, I'm not sure if you're heard about "after." Usually, if a piece of art is inspired by another's work, the artist includes this "after 'work' by 'artist" under the title of the piece. So "I'll Pull Up a Chair" After 'Please Pull Up a Chair' By Becca Teagan. It's just a way to ensure kudos are given all the way around. I didn't know about this either until just a year ago! Its not common knowledge on Soup! Enjoyed this much! Cheers..
