Jam For Tea


In a paper cup

I sailed across

A saw tooth sea to see

The sight of the almighty

Making jam for me

The God whipped up

A measuring cup

Of sugar from the sky

And placed it on a china plate

And gave to me to try

Too cold said I to mighty God

And nodding he agreed

He warmed it up with heated breath

He added fruit a bit of zest

And there was Jam for tea.

My Friend Muffin


Legs like chopsticks

Eyes like peas

Hair like pasta

Knees like cheese

With a jelly of a belly

And a pudding for a nose

Feet like meat cuts

Sausages for toes

Hands like candy

Finger licking good

Ears are pancakes

Very very good

My friend Muffin

He smells great

When he sits on my

Dinner plate.
