Constantly Torment

Tears well in my eyes; don't let anyone see
Patch the broken parts over and over
Let no one know I am late for the show
Again, unconcern seems my plot
Friends don't desire your lights
Lard biscuits don't make you slender
Taste and know; It ain't for show

Tastes change and remove a familiar flavor
no lard to make those butter biscuits today
Hushpuppy corn bread is the way to go

    A forlorn cook, a baker too. She stayed inside and just felt blue. She ate herself into a coma. She just couldn' resist that sweet aroma. Thank you for you nice comments on my poems Doris. Have a lovely day. :)

    this seems sad, Doris. About the butter biscuits, I think I heard lard made them really yummy!! but the hushpuppy corn bread sure sounds good too.
