Shrove Tuesday: A Poem

Pancake Day is a time of delight,

When we flip and toss with all our might,

With syrup, butter, and fruit in sight,

We savour every fluffy bite.


Some make theirs thin, some make them thick,

Some use a recipe, some just pick,

But one thing's for sure, we love the thrill,

Of eating pancakes till we feel ill.


So let's gather round and have some fun,

We'll eat until the morning sun,

And when our bellies weigh a ton,

We'll know Pancake Day was well done!
