Inspired by a podcast I like, called Brits on Bikes.

There is no reason I should feel gutted over a couple of pancakes. None. Absolutely none.

Damn it.


Pancakes For Sally
lyrics and melody by Cat Faber

Sieve 2 cups of flour, toss a pinch of salt therein,
Break a couple eggs into the middle.
Add a pint of milk and then a half cup more to thin
Melt a little butter on the griddle.

The morning sun is pouring in and banishing all doubt
The pancake and the lemon smells entwining...
Someone shake the tablecloth and set the dishes out
Pour the milk and get the silver shining.

Cook about three minutes till it’s set and golden brown,
Flip and give another half a minute
Repeat to make a dozen; I’ve got all that written down
Though I’d need to cross dimensions to begin it

Sally will have lemon juice and sugar from the store
I’ll have cream, and honey from the clover,
There’ll be pancakes for Sally till she can’t eat any more
And perhaps her sister, if there’s some left over.

She could hopscotch into Fairy without looking where she went;
And cross the narrow bridge above the valley.
I believe in pancakes, and the love they represent;
Someday there’ll be pancakes for Sally.
