Toastmaster Richard Birtchnell's opening words at the Aviation Club during the Chinese President’s visit to the UK last week.
So the red carpet’s out for Xi Jin Ping
For whom that banquet and all the Bling
Would have impressed all those back in Beijing
But not, it would seem, our future King
Here up the road from the Palace, aviation’s good and great
Who are trusted with moving many people and freight
Will dine as richly as any Head of State
All to be served on the best China plate
The banquet begins with Salmon Terrine
And more dishes like this that are fit for a Queen
Let’s be grateful for the finest cuisine
Then brag to your friends where you have been
(DUCK WAS ON THE MENU. BUT NOT FROM PEKING!)
