Placed in front of you with a feast meat for a king,
Offered by the clown that comes with a new, neat thing.

Tastes from the sea when the red girl comes this way,
Always good with whatever John catches that day.

To tempt you with what the cows try to murder,
Or at the place where you won't wait further.

What am I?

  • $\begingroup$ Excellent edit, you got all but the last clue right. I'll go ahead and accept this as the correct answer. $\endgroup$ – Joe-You-Know May 31 '18 at 15:06

I'm just guessing here:

Is it something about a Potato? Just because of the first letter of the rhyme maybe that's a hint to the right answer. I don't really know what is a potato about with each line of the riddle, i let anyone else guess it
