    Today at Morrison's a Voice
    Spoke to me and said I should
    Purchase an unusual delicacy ~
    The Voice had trouble pronouncing
    Coquilles St Jacques but I understood;
    I had finished reading a book about the
    Pilgrimage to Santiago yesterday and
    Knew that the Voice was specially for me;
    Without further ado I ran ran ran to the
    Fish counter and scooped up the scallops,
    Selecting the 6th May expiry instead of the 5th
    Because you cannot take chances with shellfish,
    Even Holy ones ~ the scallop is the Symbol of
    The Via Compostela and is thus one of the
    Earliest logos in Europe, a sigil or rebus
    Marking out the path and also those who
    Have completed the journey;
    Last Summer I walked part of
    The route on the French side, the
    Via Tolosana, joining it near Montpellier
    Perhaps I will resume this year;
    Anyway I bought the scallops for £2.48,
    Having been told by the Voice that they
    Were easy for "us blokes" to cook
    And whipped them in to the oven
    For fifteen minutes at 180o
    Once I had arrived home
    Along with a Pukka Pie which needed
    Forty minutes ~ this was the big Pukka
    Which I had managed to find reduced
    To £1.25 at a different emporium ~
    No Voices spoke to me at the Spar;
    The Coquilles were soon ready and
    I removed them from the oven,
    Leaving the pie to cook alone;
    The shellfish was concealed by a
    Thick topping of mashed potato and
    Cheese ~ the label mentioned parsley
    But I could not see any in either of the
    Shells, which were about the size of my
    Outstretched hand and quite heavy;
    I ate the contents from the shells
    Which was a bit fiddly due to their
    Stubborn convexity in conflict with
    The flatness of my dinner plate ~
    I opened a bottle of Vaucluse red wine
    Although perhaps a Sauvignon blanc
    Or Picpoul might have been the first
    Choice but the fridge was bare of
    White wine apart from half a bottle
    Of dessert wine which would not go;
    So it was the 13% Grenache-Syrah with
    My Holy Snack and it was not displeasing;
    Now I have two beautiful shells left
    And please do not say ashtrays because
    I have no need for those sad accessories
    Instead I could fashion a pair of castanets
    Or perhaps some vast pilgrim earrings
