Writing fun sonnets is what I like to Do,

Louise I wrote this one just for You.

We travel to many clubs to play our Racketball Matches,

But Newton Abbot serve up the best Catches.

When we arrive you appear with a big cheery Smile,

Menu in hand, ready to go the extra Mile.

Meat, fish or a veggi Dish,

Always willing to knock up what ever we Wish.

Nothing for you is ever to much Trouble,

Your portion sizes are always Double.

Wholesome & tasty it arrives piping Hot,

Its always a challenge to devour the Lot.

In the kitchen you are a true Master,

I know no one else who churns out top food Faster.

So putting all these points Together,

Louise, Your top of the Devon league,

for the BEST FOOD EVER!!
