A pinch of this, a dab of that
Into the mixing bowl,
Then stir until you cain’t no more,
With all your heart and soul.

This recipe to good success
To many lives has bring’d
A sense of hope with smells o’ joy—
When baking tunes is sing’d.

The scent o’ sweet fresh bread, homemade
A loner’s heart can cheer
It saves him from the pit of gloom
And from the shame of beer.

So here’s to yous a message plain
To all who burn and bake
Keep up your work and think to put
Some love in what you make.

A funny poem I found while cleaning my room. I wrote this a long time ago. Why? I don't know why. But it's a fun little thing so I hope everyone has fun reading it.


This is SO cute! I love it. It made me smile. :) you have a perfect rhyme scheme, and the rhythm is lovely, too. Thank you for sharing this! I love finding old treasures. It's fun to see how much our writing has changed over the years. You've certainly got a gift with words, girly. <3

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.
