Captivating Cake

Once there was a wedding in town
With gorgeous flowers set around,
But no one noticed them abound

They were too busy trying to admire
A beautiful cake designed as a shire
Made with flour and eggs, all cooked in a fire

No one noticed the groom or bride
They only saw the baker’s pride
And longed to know the taste inside.

As their mouths watered, the vows were made
Their desire had still yet to fade
Once again their eyes were laid

 On the cake of majesty and love
Crafted depicting a flying dove
Everyone in the line would shove

To get the scrumptious treat
Once it was theirs they would eat
Not caring about troubles they would meet.

Once there was a wedding fair
But no one cared or would dare
Risk missing the many delicious layers.

This made me smile a little. Isn't that what happens a lot? That we get focused on a detail, completely forgetting the much more important matters around us? Great poem. Welcome to PoetrySoup!
