Chef Cheree & Bert's Bakery - Poem by Luke Easter
Fried chicken & pound cake are staples of the Baptist Church,
Just like the chicken or the egg it's debatable which came first,
But, when partaking in these delicious fundamental delicacies,
I doubt if we're interested in discussing or solving the mystery.
It is an old adage about the apple not falling far from the tree,
So very true when it comes to baked /fried from Chef Cheree,
However, good as it is it's equally hard to slow down & wait,
Sinking our teeth in the scrumptiousness of Bert's pound cake.
There's something about church cooking like the deep-sea dish,
Had to eat one there and take another one home of Jo's Catfish,
Not to forget the Italian cuisine spaghetti of Sister Lily Reeves,
Add Jeannette Bryant's cooking, do I want some more? Please!
Not only did Joanna put her, 'foot in it' she left her phone # too,
Great, since I sure will be calling her when the next time is due,
I'm so over blessed because at home I have Joyce De La Royce,
Whether at Good Hope or Montford Road I get USDA Choice.
Now, I could be gentle and end this tale here but I just can't stop,
8 years later I am still waiting on Phyllis Bradford's Pork Chops,
But hearing Pastor Bradford growl at the Hong Kong King buffet,
Surely his roar probably makes it hard to sneak even 1 bone away.
Milton stands on two legs like a furious huge Alaskan Brown Bear,
The scowl on the mug of Reverend Rodgers shows he doesn't care,
Thankfully Sister Una satisfies Bob's stomach so there's no breach,
You don't need to show up on Sunday to hear Pastor Luke preach.
And who is there to be sure things are running smooth and upright?
The Rough and Ready duo of Ruth Valentine & Cindy Satterwhite,
KFC is not the only place where the food is deliciously finger lick'n,
Ask any that's eaten a dinner orchestrated in Good Hope's Kitchen.
Ah, I think it's much better to quit now leaving well enough alone,
Because in just a few short hours yep, the Lioness will come home,
Last thing I need to have is a confrontation on top of this throne,
Peace & goodwill to all in the words of ancient Hebrew, Shalome!
