Memorial Day Treat

I had no cookout to attend
With loads of barbecue;
My spirits needed perking up,
So what’s a gal to do?

I hurried to a Shake Shack
With the energy I’d mustered,
To check the daily flavors
Of their oh-so-creamy custard.

I hit the jackpot and my heartstrings
Answered with a twang,
For Monday’s special was my fave:
Ta-da! Lemon meringue.

That velvety consistency
Was soft and smooth as cream.
I had to pinch myself to prove
This wasn’t just a dream.

I know a hot dog and a beer
Would be more apropos,
But custard in a cone was still
A perfect way to go!

    A fun poem Ilene. No custard shacks around here but I can always find an icecream place. Thank you for your kind remarks. Love, Joyce

    A sweet creamy poem. We have a custard place near us. Handed down, generations of family. My husband and I have been going there for 45 years. After reading this, I must get my custard for the week. Warm Smiles, Connie
