They had a Cook with them who stood alone
For boiling chicken with a marrow bone,
But what a pity – so it seemed to me,
That he should have an ulcer on his knee.
The Cook is a particularly good example of the timeless quality of Geoffrey Chaucer’s writing: it is easy to imagine today’s Health & Safety team bearing down on him with his running abscess while working in his kitchen. Our decorators particularly enjoy painting the open sore on his leg, always making sure it is not masked by his russet apron!
