The Table Plan Poem



It’s never easy,

When the list of guests you’re scanning

To find the perfect answer

To the perfect table planning.


The seating problem could be solved with ease

If folks could sit just where they please,

But since we’ve had civilisation

The problem has been one great complication:


Who should sit where and alongside of whom

Pray that someone will design a room

Where all are at front and none at the end,

And everyone sits right next to his friend.


But until that great achievement

Our best we’ve tried to do,

So please relax, enjoy yourself

For now it’s up to you.
