She Likes To Cook

Written by: Red OMara

She likes to cook.
Often, it seems.
Often, and perhaps too much.
Like all good cooks, 
she must sometimes 
be taken advantage of; 
her culinary delights devoured carelessly 
to sate the hunger 
of some as well sustained by Maccas.
But chefs so splendid, 
so gifted and so generous as she is, 
enjoy the giving of pleasure. 
Giving so patiently and carefully
and willingly and happily.
And exuberantly! 
And, perhaps, too much.
Too much for what's returned.
She has fed me too her cakes 
and banquets of sweets and such delights
as leave me desperate to repay,
with dishes that she might 
enjoy as much.
