Christmas - Plum Cake

Written by: Gloria Watts

Christmas – Plum Cake

If you like Plum Cake
Do beware
For unripe plums
Can cause despair

Be very careful
With the flour
Sift and sift but
Don’t take an hour

Add some sugar
But do beware
Sugar is bad,
So do take care

Mix in some 
Butter, this way
Use your fingers 
washed today

Time to mix in
Some luscious plums, 
Careful now, wash
That red tongue  

Getting late now
Off to bed
Think of tomorrow’s
Christmas –

Of the Plum Cake ahead
