First Line: Much do I love, at civic treat
Last Line: Thee and thy dainty friends to leave.
Alternate Author Name(s): Smith, Sidney
Subject(s): Fish & Fishing; Food & Eating

MUCH do I love, at civic treat,
The monsters of the deep to eat;
To see the rosy salmon lying,
By smelts encircled, born for frying;
And from the china boat to pour,
On flaky cod, the flavour'd shower.
Thee, above all, I much regard,
Flatter than Longman's flattest bard,
Much honour'd turbot!—sore I grieve
Thee and thy dainty friends to leave.
