Posts Tagged ‘ash wednesday’

You perhaps know it as pancake day, but the day that falls before Ash Wednesday is really called Shrove Tuesday. It is the day on which people shrived, in order to prepare for the fasting that occurred during Lent. Shriving isn’t very common actability these days, but it meant eating up all the things in the cupboard that weren’t allowed to be eaten during Lent. One of the popular items made using these soon to be forbidden ingredients was pancakes, and thus in time the day became known a pancake day.

 

I must confess that I don’t really like pancakes, which may explain why we have such a limited offering of funny pancake day poems on the menu. If you don’t enjoy Pancake Day, Pancake Day, there’s only bread and water as an alternative.

 

Pancake Day Pancake Day

by Patrick

 

Pancake Day, Pancake Day

The pan’s getting hotter

The butter has melted

I’ve poured in the batter

 

Pancake Day, Pancake Day

The pancake is sizzling

A flick of the wrist

And its stuck to the ceiling

 

Pancake Day, Pancake Day

I’ve not seen mum crosser

So which did she call me

‘A champion tosser’

 

Oh, I hope I remembered to warn you that some adults will consider this poem rather rude!

TOSSING A PANCAKE

Tossing a pancake

I can do that
Just get a fry pan
Heat up the fat
Mix up the batter
As easy as that
One on the ceiling
One on the cat
One on the door
One on the mat
One on my head
Like a sweet sticky hat

TOSSING THE PANCAKE

Tossing the pancake
How hard could it be?
Well quite difficult
Which surprised me
What an awful mess
After the first three
I gave up after four
That landed on me

I THOUGHT I’D TRY TOSSING A PANCAKE

I thought I would try tossing a pancake
Well that turned out to be a big mistake
The first three didn’t leave the pan at all
The next two were sliding down the wall
The only one dispatched with any grace
Then splashed hot fat right in my face

PANCAKE DAY

For the world at large shrove Tuesday
Precedes Ash Wednesday 
For my unfortunate family stove Tuesday
Precedes trash Wednesday

AT THE ANNUAL PANCAKE RACE

At the annual pancake race
The winner is always smug Trace
I’m always at the rear of the chase
Limping home in last place
Then I must congratulate Trace
And engage in a false embrace

When I really want to hear the base

Of the frying pan hitting her face

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.” ― Octavia E. Butler
