A Figurative Fig

This is a fig. (Fig. A,

you might say.)

The fig is made, not of fig, but of green marchpane with chocolate filling,

white sugar frosting and one syrup dewdrop. Perfectly killing.

The fig keeps company with a shortbread jam sandwich and a quiche.

Tucked into a niche,

In Maison Bertaux.

(Soho, you know.)


  1. The problem with Maison Berthaux is that their coffee is undrinkable. A fatal flaw, I'm afraid.

  2. Was there a hallucinogenic substance in the fig??
