Davenport Dining


In Davenport, the fryer’s gone;
Instead they serve a plate of prawn,
With grapefruit cut in perfect halves –
And not a dish produced from calves.

‘Progressive’ is the term they use
For making hungry scholars choose
A spinach salad in disguise –
But not a single stick of fries.

They bake or steam each healthy dish,
Despite the fact that students wish
To have a midday Tater Tot,
Composed of starch, and steaming hot.

But Davenport knows what is best
For growing children to ingest:
A dose of vegetables and fruit
Will make the students more astute.

Of course it comes as no surprise
That costs are shortly set to rise,
But when you’re in a nanny state
They’ll break the bank to cut your weight.

  1. The last couplet written should just say:

    But when you’re in a nanny state
    They’ll break YOUR bank to cut your weight.
