Saxon Crow



Cake, cake, cake, cake, cake!
I like cake. No!
I lovvvvve cake.
What’s not to like?
Four little letters
That spell out joy
C.A.K.E – Cake
It’s just so versatile
And it’s a marvel for all occasions
Wedding cake, Birthday cake,
Coffee cake and Tea
There’s even a cake of soap
If your tastes are of a more
Exotic persuasion
Ahhhh cake, the greatest creation.
I must be honest
I don’t actually trust anyone who doesn’t like cake
Unless you are diabetic of course
But even then I’m on the fence with them
Begrudgingly I have to admit
That you can share cake too
Which goes to show that sometimes
You can’t have your cake and eat it
Cake, cake, cake, cake, cake!
……………………… Oh no!
I forgot about cheese!
Cheese, cheese, cheese, cheese, cheese
I like cheese. No!
I lovvvvve cheese……….

              Ha ha, my thoughts too!

            • Poetic Dan

              Cheese cake or any cake will make my day, thanks for the sweet poetry on this sunny morning rays. Although I'd not go to the shop as the world going crazy, stay home and bake!

                  Nice, fun piece, SC
                  Yes to cake! & Yes to cheese!
                  Have a great day,

                  Brit slang 'cake hole' = your mouth.

                  We were made to love cake, if the weather were finer i would live in a cake with icing upon the roof and jam in the bedrooms - well some of the bedrooms cos i too will need a cheese bedroom.

                  I have re-read your piece and i'm drooling.... i must turn the page for i fear i shall begin to put on weight.

                  P.S. I bake them too.... i have a huge farmhouse fruit cake in a tin within reach.... it's what your right arm is for you know.

                  I found your words today quite therapeutic.

                  Very funny, Mr Crow.What about ice cream? Chips? Mango chutney? Sausages? There's poetry in all of them.
