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?
