The inspector came earlier than anticipated

~~The Restaurant Health Inspection

By Elton Camp

For the manager of the Greasy Spoon
The health inspector came too soon

The employees heard him say, “Eek!”
Then, “You aren’t due until next week!”

The inspector, with a wry grin
Proceeded to walk right on in

The manager turned pale in the face
Knowing her cafe was a disgrace

Mice were scurrying everywhere
With their dropping here and there

The dishwasher water wasn’t hot
And the cabbage was about to rot

The refrigerator read sixty degrees
Filthy floors were worse than these

Roaches were nibbling food on a plate
The milk was past its expiration date

The restrooms didn’t have any soap
As for hot water, that’s also a nope

“It’s too bad for you that I came around
For this place is officially shut down!”

“Tell your customers now to leave
And that no bill will they receive”
