Bakery Rules

Bakers, wear hair nets please, no double dips spoons, wash your hands, be clean, not sloppy buffoons, cover each and every sneeze, give bratty kids a cookie, whether or not they say, "please," don't dump gobs of frosting on a spoiled bridezilla's head, or the wrath of the bridezilla's battle-axe mother, we will surely dread ! *Back in the day I was a cake artist for twenty years. A lot of the job was rewarding, but we had our share of, "problem customers". I also have a strange sense of humor, lol!!!!

Those rules are ubiquitous in the bakery industry. You have described them poetically well.

Hi Bill, my poem is limerick-like, but I don't have the patience for the stressed syllable beat of the way limericks are supposed to be written. So it's a, "hybrid," of limerick rhyme scheme and light verse. Thank you for reading it, and commenting. ~

I like the rhythm--the recurrence of consecutive accents. Bill Keem
