Au Secours! (A French Warning!)


Le Bard en France, day 2! I have to admit a terrible weakness: I cannot resist patisseries. So if you ever find yourself in St Pol in Northern France, test your will power at the GOURMAND”IN on the Market Square, you have been warned…

My diets taken a battering in the wake,
Of wonderful food and chocolate cake.
In France they posses secret weapons,
Even more dangerous than Mrs Bard threatens!
Patisserie shops they are called,
One look in the window and you’ve been pulled!
I stood outside, my mouth agape,
Couldn’t move, there was no escape.
Just one cake I managed to sneak,
My diet starts again next week!
