This Tuesday has a special name
Heat up your frying pans again!
Eggs and flour and fat are needed
All diets should be superseded!
Before Ash Wednesday, start of Lent,
Many are those who are Hell-bent
To indulge in pancakes freshly made
So cafés do a roaring trade.
The fillings can be what you will
Chocolate seems to top the bill
But lemon and sugar are so good;
And yes - we eat more than we should!
