Poems of the Week

“Subway bread is not bread, Irish court rules
Judge finds that sugar content of US chain’s sandwiches
exceeds stipulated limit and they should thus be classified as confectionery”
The Guardian

Apprised of a shortage of bread,
The Queen, without losing her head,
Responded: “Gâteau
Is a no-no, I know;
I suggest they eat Subway instead.”
