EXPORTING DREAMS—GINGER CREAMS

EXPORTING DREAMS—GINGER CREAMS

Came home from Upstate New York,

With much that would fill a fork…

Including home-made

Cookies we parade,

To eat them all would be dork!

Molasses and brown sugar full,

Exerts an awfully strong pull…

On two diabetics

And their diuretics,

Their self-control’s covered by wool.

So export those cookies ‘real quick’

Before these folks get sick….

Of eating this cooking

So sweet and good-looking,

Making diets difficult to stick!
