Porto’s answer to pancake day

Porto, 15th Feb

Lampshades, a family

Dressed up, carnivalling

Around town with

Torches on their heads

Inside lamp-shaded

Hats for bodies in

Black felt, no socket,

No fuse, popcorn

Munched for current.

Ducklings, a larger family,

Dressed up, carnivalling

Around town with Yellow

Felt stitched over baby

Heads and smaller heads

And grown-up heads, sewn on,

Beaks wide for hot dogs,

Waddling to reggae ton
