GOT A FRUITCAKE?

GOT A FRUITCAKE?

 

Is it too early this season,

To cast a vote for reason…

Not for President

Or election comment,

But committing of gifting malfeasance!

The subject of gifting fruitcake

Is a topic not all can take…

It’s a joke for some

While for others the rum,

Is used for a thirsty man’s slake.

Once we had a painter crew

Inside with some work to do…

They nipped rum hidden

By my Mom, unbidden

And painting lines started running askew.

She sprinkled it on her fruitcake,

But for teetotalers she’d forsake…

That flavor enhancer

Some considered cancer,

Otherwise it was the same kind baked.

One year she was pressured and hurried,

Afterwards shocked and worried…

She sent our Aunt Mandy

One with rum or brandy,

Expecting to get communications flurried…!

Aunt Mandy thought this particular year was great,

In fact, the best she ever ate…

After that, Mom sent

Her normal intent,

Until Aunt Mandy was laying in state.
