Kaiserschmarren – fun poem – August 25, 2015

Franz Joseph I. of Austria-Hungary

The king of Austria
in the evening they say
before he went to bed
loved to snack on a crepe
precisely at ten …

Ach – said the cook
as the crepe fell apart
“What will the king say
now this damage is done …”
no time to whip up more,
here’s what he did:
the unlucky cook
looked at that crepe …
then shredded it up,
put it on a silver platter –
dusted it with sugar
…  added a spoonful of jam,
and with a smile for the king …
said with aplomb:
“Your Excellency
for you! My latest creation,
Bon Appetite!”
