Bringing Back Memories Of... .....[humor; Eating; Very Short; For Jak Black, Ph Friend] - Poem by Bri Edwards

When at my mirrored-belly I look,
I remember what my wife does cook.
Or should I have said “does bake”?
Like each pie, croissant, and cake!

I used to be a slim, handsome guy,
but the “slim” part gave in ….to pie.
I’m still quite handsome. Goodness sake.
Pass me another slice ………of that cake!

    What could be better than fresh pie or cake. I would rather remember those good old days of my home made goodies! (Report) Reply

    For cake's sake, pie guy, you forgot to rhyme croissant (restaurant?) . Pretty good anyway. (Report) Reply

    You're not eating enough of that humble pie, you handsome chap.
    Thanks for taking up the challenge. Ha ha. Was expecting something a little more sensitive/sentimental than your hankering for food. That's love I suppose. Enjoyed the humour Bri.
