Yorkshire Pudding on Baking Tray with wood and decorative festive background

Granny's Roast Dinners by Peter Donnelly

-Peter J Donnelly

In this house they rise
Like doubloons
Or better still
Shaped something like
A sperm whales eardrum
They all are eaten
With gravy or syrup
With awe
And occasionally with stew

-Julie Corbett

The Buzz

“Where are the Yorkshire Puddings?”
a customer enquires, and to show
them where is the gravy to my brain.

“Have you got any custard?”
I point to the correct aisle
and get the jam roly poly in my stomach.

That shot of serotonin to the head,
lifts the day. I know where to find
what they want or need feels worthwhile.

-Paul Brookes
