Shrove Tuesday

How many pancakes
Fit for a kid king?
Sitting in his high chair
How many pancakes
Will he consume?
Five, four, three, two
Batter bubbling in the grease
Sitting on the griddle
‘Til they are hot in the middle
Flip flap jack
Sizzling circles in a stack
Butter melting through each crack
Two, four, six, eight
Spoon, spatula, pan, plate
Syrup sap
Drip drop
Lips smack
