A Sonnet to Bread

One of the few ways you can end up dead

By the hand of an otherwise placid girl

Is to come between her and her french bread.

Beware of she who is pure as pearls

Pure she is not when the beast of hunger roars.

While puppeteered by primal impulses

She tears through loaves like a wolf on all fours

In such state even herself she repulses.

 

But alas, bread was put on earth to eat

Devouring among the finer joys

So go stuff your cheek with a hunk of wheat

Do not be afraid of scaring the boys.

They are not worth you if they do not agree

To ravenous eating while at high tea.
