Flying Raisins

Flying raisins are in the air,there are flying raisins everywhere
I see them flying all around, I see them landing on the ground
I wish they would just go away, but they’ll just come back another day

I see them flying in the sky, I see them getting in my pie
I see them walking on my cake, I see them in everything I make
I wish they would just go away, but they’ll just come back another day

I find them in my cookie dough, I don’t know why they just won’t go
I do not like them can’t you see, flying raisins are all over me!

I don’t know where they come from, I just want them to leave
There’s three or four more on my shirt, and two more on my sleeve

Then I saw the open box, sitting high upon the rack
I pulled it down then turned it around, it said, “ CAUTION “ on the back

It said, not for use in cooking, such as cookies, cakes or pies
For I thought I bought a box of raisins, but they were laboratory flies

    Flying raisins and then flying butter. Crazy what the FDA is doing to our food supply these days. ; ) Hugs, Juliet.

    hahaha, GREAT twist at the end. You are lucky I happened to click on that poem of yours at the top again, or i would never have seen your reply to my comment. I remember there was a Seuss type contest a long time ago. Did this one get a win. It looks like you got some congrats for this one being featured. Congrats for that.

    Roger This is a very creative and fun write. The reader is taken on a journey of raisin attacks but in a crazy way. Nice job
