"Who's ate all the pies, then?"
Said the badger to the rat.
"And as for cakes and jelly, well,
I'd rather eat my hat."
The candles posed a hazard,
Drink was spilt from every cup.
And at the end, nobody stayed
To help with washing-up.
The moral of this tale is clear
And this advice comes free:
If you're entertaining, don't invite
Wild animals to tea.

These days if I want to have a party, I arrange for it at a place where there is hired help to clean up.ReplyDelete
Consequently, I don't have too many parties.
