Got back from a trip to the city;
Now it’s time for the nitty gritty.
Cooking for a crowd -- numbers unknown.
The Ruritan Club will sub for home.
Chili, spaghetti, and grated cheese
With a bit of onion, if you please
Nachos, cookies, and some brownies too
Tea and lemonade for quite a few.
This is not one of my better plans,
But Richard hasn’t thrown up his hands.
How it all goes, we will have to see;
Too bad people don’t RSVP.
