Is there something almost Kipling to the rhythm of this beautiful line?

[02.063]  I’ll cook beautifully for you, a perfectly beautiful breakfast for you, if only you won’t have me for supper.”

Something like “Up jumped Nqua from his seat on the salt-flat and shouted “Go away!”

  • 01.142 and cook everybody else’s wretched breakfast.
  • 02.057 “And can yer cook ’em?” said Tom.
  • 02.063 “And please don’t cook me,
  • 02.063 I am a good cook myself,
  • 02.063 and cook better than I cook,
  • 02.063 and cook better than I cook,
  • 02.063 I’ll cook beautifully for you,
  • 03.024 “I can smell the wood-fires for the cooking.”
  • 06.099 and the figures of the dwarves round it cooking
  • 06.099 being used to having it delivered by the butcher all ready to cook.
  • 08.092 and cooking,
