I am very indecisive
And so choices cause me strife,
Though when I reveal my problem
I’ll be told to “get a life!”
For presented on a platter,
At a friend’s house, after lunch,
There was not just one dessert
But many pastries, quite a bunch.
Thus, confronted with cannolis,
Carrot cake and pecan pie
And a towering red velvet –
Who could choose? Well, how could I?
A Napoleon was nestled
Next to some dark chocolate square
And of course, since we are healthy,
There was lots of fruit to spare.
So I narrowed down my options;
In addition to some fruit,
I had part of a cannoli
And some carrot cake, to boot.
Oh, if all of life’s dilemmas
Could be solved with such a taste,
Then the problems that exist on earth
Could simply be erased!
