831 - Of Cakes and Candles

Of Cakes and Candles.

You deserve a cake.
Make two and give one away.
A sweet thing to do.

Eskimos rebel.
From the President’s igloo:
“Let them row kayaks.”

When the cake is lit:
Close your eyes and keep blowing.
Make a nice a wish.

Wishes don’t come true.
Well, not this sort of sugary wish,
Unless for more cake.

And what type of cake?
Most women want chocolate,
Men are fine with cheese.

Candles reflect life:
Bright but ever so fragile.
Life, like candles, ends.
