The Cook

The Cook

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 ‘s perhaps easy to imagine today’s Health & Safety squads bearing down on him with the open running abscess on his thigh – 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!
