Lemon Bars

Written by: James Gibbons

I tried the lemon bars
My wife made from scratch
Lovely 'luscious lemon bars
The first taste of heaven
Hit my brain like a coke
Snorter's high seen on TV
Then the taste kicked in
Like a Missouri mule,
Galloping down my swallow tube,
Like swans swimming 
To the sea. The substance,
Oh the substance spread
Its sublime satisfaction                                                                                                 
Simply everywhere like
Season's first snow falling
On the outstretched tongues of 
Enchanted winter children.
