The poem ‘Betts Butchers of Banbury’ inspired by the photograph.

Lamb chops, Pork Chops
Sausages too
Go to Church Lane
And get in the queue.

Joints of Beef
A nice Leg of Lamb
You can even get peas
But they come in a can.

Vegetables sold
To go with the meat
Sawdust on floor
So no slipping with feet.

Boning the meat
It does take some skill
Eating is better
When you’ve had your fill.

Meat sold in packs
You get three for ten pound
All stack so neatly
Outside it is found.

It’s the bargain of Banbury
It’s the best you can buy
To go elsewhere
You would ask yourself….Why.
