Oh! What a mess

Oh! What a mess

A Poem by Wild Rose

Oh! What a mess.

05 July 2020


I am going to make some sausage rolls she said

Flour, margarine, lard, for the pastry.

Prepare the dry mixture tonight then just make the dough tomorrow

Flour weighed, add the fats


With flour and fats in the bowl

She slipped;

Knocked; the bowl off the scales

Flour and fats spread


Across the work surface

On the floor

Oh! What a mess

Leave if a minute


Bring another bowl

Spoon up the fats

Leaving as much flour as possible

Into the clean bowl


Another clean bowl

A serving ladle

Scoop up the piles of flour

Into the bowl


Stiff brush and dust pan

Brush up as much as possible

Into the waste bin

Vacuum the rest


Oh What a mess

It was

Begin again

Flour and fats into the bowl
