Poor Planning

'Twas all arranged: my three-course meal;
I'd sauteed onions, made hors d'œuvres,
Chopped some carrots, whipped up mousse -
Quite sure to please once it was served.

But best of all, the beef rib roast,
With herbed potatoes all around,
My mouth just watered to think of it -
The guests would surely wolf it down.

Our thoughts and taste buds all were glad,
At all the joy this meal would spawn,
So imagine my shame-faced chagrin,
That I forgot to turn the oven on!
