THE WHOLE LOAF
I once had a girl who assigned
Me to make bread during the time…
She went to work
I began with a smirk,
It didn’t turn out quite so fine.
I made whole wheat bread,
Didn’t time the yeast as well as it said…
It came out a brick
But the pan didn’t stick,
After carving two slices, it was dead.
Wasn’t bad for my first yeast loaf,
But my woman probably thought me an oaf…
The engagement didn’t last
And our lives are both recast,
Good cooking is not just soft soap!
(My wife LIKES my cooking—as long as I measure things!)
