Bleezer's Ice Cream

Rating: 4.1


I am Ebenezer Bleezer,

twenty-eight divine creations
too delicious to resist,
why not do yourself a favor,
try the flavors on my list:

I like how he proceeds to list his 28 flavor menu. You just know he was somewhere fun (like a carnival or circus) when he wrote this!

Most interesting layout of Bleezer's Ice Cream store. Lip-smacking. Thanks for all this lovely fare which nobody can stand and stare.

I stumbled on this cutie, (flavors not all read...yet) . I now plan to include it in my 2nd Aug.2021 'showcase' of poems from PH. Thanks. I knew an ice cream/dairy store in my youth which had a 'flavor of the day', once including, I think, Sauerkraut. bri ;)
