Bistro Angst

Pa pa pa da tralala
Pa pa pa da tralala
Vivaldi's Primavera
often heard in bistros
not relaxing
for the guests
But who's here to relax?
It's a serious buisness!
Is it a good enough restaurant?
Worried tourists
worry about not
getting the
'optimal eating experience'
for their Yens
Do we really want a steak
served on a wooden plank?

Would we prefer a wooden
stake through the heart?
Such questions vex diners
in Chianti mode
(alcohol helps)
Ah! L'estate!
(that thunderstorm bit; glorious)
The waiter bounds his way
his little pad is ready
We are ready, but for one,
When she is,
the bounding waiter will be gone!
