Not serious, but with whimsy

And it is the middle of the night

in the wee hours of the morning,

and the sweetness of all that making sense

got me to thinking that if I got

a plate and a fork and put

whipped topping on cherry cheesecake

it wouldn’t be too hateful,

so I did it,

and it wasn’t,

and sorry I didn’t save you a bite

but I eat well enough most of the time that

I don’t worry about a few carbs when I want them

and know well enough that

what goes into a man can’t defile him,

and even if something that went in him

would defile him,

it certainly wouldn’t be cherry cheesecake

with whipped topping scooped on its top,

which is as sweet as knowing that

“A Room of One’s Own”

or that Strunk and White still matter.
