We Don’t Serve Cheeseburgers at Downton

 

By Elton Camp

 

Mrs. Patmore strongly protested

When a cheeseburger was requested

 

With a sneer, the cook did say

“That guest is from the USA.”

 

“While for an American it’s good enough,

My kitchen would be defiled by such stuff.”

 

“Thus, such lowly fare I’ll never serve.

From gourmet food I refuse to swerve.”

 

“Tell him standards must be maintained,”

To her young helper, Daisy, she explained

 

“Go back to him and very firmly say,

‘Cook says you must be satisfied with pate.’”

 

“Lord and Lady Grantham I couldn’t face

If I gave in and cooked such a disgrace!”

 

“Downton Abbey is world-renown

For the fine food that does abound.”
