Be Near Heaven's Door

Be awake like heaven's door,
Let cheesecake be your companion,
And cupcakes for the dusk,
With dawn as a friend and equation.
Mathematicians shall deplore the tastes
Of hell, for in their heaven a rust
Occurs and collects to dismay the majority,
Where geometry subjugates
Whenever shapes shall be ready.

The flakes of our island bake and enter
The lusts, one has to forsake a fruitcake,
Oh, the intake of a few speedy morsels.
The hack-and-slash of chemistry
Subdues the regions of the heavens,
We see chemical wars and engineering men
On the factories of food and drink.
Then because the lake defies and deifies
Us, we live in stupidity, and all our woe
Has chiefly disappeared.
