The next dish is from the deepest of seas.
A lobster so big it brought fishermen to their knees.
This dish was a trial that required a vote
To boil it in the pool or use part of the moat.
Armored body cracked open revealing the meat
The shell was so thick that we had to cheat.
It has been cracked open by thirty knight swords
Most of which shattered to the fret of our lords.
No butter or sauce has been poured on the dish
The gigantic lobster’s meat is naturally delish.
It has left the prince staring with his jaw on the floor.
This should give us some time to cook up some more.
Twenty carts full of dumplings made round and moist.
It is said that these recipes have made kings rejoice.
Dumplings of cheese and others with fruit.
One tray with dumplings of candied pine root.
The prince loves the type that is bursting with jelly.
He joyfully eats them as they stick in his belly.
Now I must praise the chefs who worked hard on this food.
For they made enough for us all, to lighten our mood.
It is time for the final entrée to be eaten.
Various pastas with sauces to sweeten.
Shapes of funnels and animals and old-fashioned clocks.
There is even a set of pasta building blocks.
We have sauces for dipping and others to pour.
I fear that the clean-up will be such a chore.
The prince is making a mess throwing pasta about.
At least the fun he is having is wearing him out.
We are nearing dessert that needs some more time.
So we have some fresh fruit that is truly sublime.
Bouncing cherries that hop as you try to eat them
And a diced opal watermelon that shines like a gem.
Apples with herbal worms and bananas au gratin
Our fruit farmers have made sure that nothing is rotten.
Some items are chilled and others are heated
I believe a few extra napkins are needed.
