Tidying up the kitchen shelves reminded me of this verse I wrote for a friend who works in retail:
Oxo comes first,
with Bovril second on the list;
Maggi makes three; then Knorr,
that’s four. Marmite, of course –
that can’t be missed.
Now, is there a sixth?
In fact, many of these aren’t actually kept in my (mainly vegetarian) kitchen, while there does appear to have been Avecrem – which I totally forgot to mention – on the shelf when I took the photo. It’s probably a good thing I’m not required to do stock control in my work.
