Breakfast in America

breakfast

AnElephantCant argue that breakfast
In the US is a substantial meal
In Scotland our porridge
Fills us up for a forage
But over here the choices make AnElephant’s head reel

The waiting staff are always so friendly
Good morning and How are you doing
They treat him like Zeus
They bring him orange juice
And in minutes he is slurping and chewing

The range of good grub is amazing
The menu so huge it takes ten minutes to scan it
French Toast it tells him
Waffles from Belgium
There is stuff from all over the planet

There are omelettes with all sorts of fillings
Eggs any way that you like ‘em
Over easy or poached
Scrambled and de-yolked
AnElephant finds the start to his day quite exciting

But the bestest of all are the pancakes
They are fluffy and come in a high stack
You just pull your chair up
Add butter and syrup
And eat till your stomach has a panic attack

He tries banana and potato and blueberry
And strawberry and apple and pecan
Or sausage and bacon
You can even put steak on
AnElephant says if an American can then so he can

The last time AnElephant blogged about breakfast
He brilliantly entitled it Breakfast Epiphanies
But he must intervene here
Only the lovely Christina
Understood the pun for Breakfast at Tiffany’s

    AnElephantCant must never try Texas Gravy and Grits
    Though some folks say it’s the Southern way
    And as breakfast as good as it gets

    Meme is a Southern Belle and always keeps her wits
    But she would not wish on anyone this dish
    Because it is just the pits

    • AnElephantCant try Texas fodder
      He is still many miles far away
      But to his dismay
      He feels he must say
      Gravy and Grits sound like a truly terrible way for a really hungry Elephant to start his day

    • AnElephantCant stick to a diet
      So please don’t say too much about that
      One thing about him
      He used to be slim
      But these breakfasts are making him fat

        I must confess, that I used to be a lot slimmer. And then something happened – not quite sure what it was. But I think the scale may be lying. I’m sticking with that story. I just had 3 cookies today, well maybe 4. OK it was more…
