Random Notes CCCXII

The Kitchen’s Closed today

On a certain Sunday morn,

looking forward to a cuppa,

we drifted towards the Parish Hall

but, alas, our plans were scuppered.

A pall of gloom spread over all

on hearing someone say,

“tea and coffee won’t be served

the kitchen’s closed today.”

With dragging feet, we turned away

and to the gate did roam.

No reason now to linger here,

we might as well go home.

Two absent people caused this woe,

the rota had gone astray,

“tea and coffee won’t be served,

the kitchen’s closed today.”

“The Pub With No Beer” was a desolate scene,

described in a well-known verse,

but let me tell you, here and now

of a sight which is far, far, worse.

A congregation, deprived of its caffeine,

wending dolefully homeward away,

“tea and coffee won’t be served,

the kitchen’s closed today.”


(A tongue in cheek account of what happened when the coffee rota hit a snag)
