Pat Fenlon Sandwich Maker

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Pat Fenlon was making sandwiches,
To earn a few extra shillings.
He’d buttered the bread,
As the manual said,
And now he was making the fillings.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He boiled some eggs and then mashed them,
And smothered them in mayonnaise,
Then he spread some plum jam
On the slices of ham,
While still in a culinary daze.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The beetroot he sliced very finely,
Then got busy with scallion-chopping,
Then he added brown sauce
And some mustard of course,
And then spiralled the carrots as topping.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 “These filings are really exciting,”
The coaching staff heard him to mutter,
“But although they’re great fun,
Sure when all’s said and done,
Let’s get back to the old bread and butter.”
