I Ate Cake - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

i ate cake for breakfast
oh, you may think that i'm a fool
have your eggs and bacon
if you think that's what you should do


twas not just any cake
mine was a very special one
i ate all i wanted
of my left over birthday cake


it had just one candle
although i'm much older 'tis true
i'll start counting over
yes, if it's all the same to you

    Great poem Faith. I like the humour. Personally, I eat cake for breakfast whether it's birthday cake or not....if it's there, that's good enough reason for me. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
