The Full English

The kitchen is in turmoil;
the chef has said at last
that on British soil
breakfast means... breakfast.

But it is fundamental
that we distinguish
between continental
and the full English.

Some people complain
that it is on the cards
the fare will be plain
and the eggs too hard.

Many others reckon
that we will be unable
to put foreign bacon
on the breakfast table.

It does my head in
to see the chef's menu,
what is within,
and what it offers you.

There has been a kerfuffle
among the anxious staff
who ask for a reshuffle
to remedy the gaffe.
