Cheesecake Nightmare

Love me or hate me
few people can take me
plain, unadulterated, true to myself
their compulsive need to gussy me up
or completely disguise me
gives me nightmares...
Horrible- horrible!

The worst is where
they try to make me

Suffocated in sauces, sweet relish
and pickled beets
garnished with green olives
and fussy-cut vienna sausages
all dancing in fancy chorus lines
on top of me
Oh No! I can't take it...
It just can't be!

What are they thinking?!

I awake with a snug sensation
as something warmish
drapes and
down my back
Caramel sauce-
Thank God!

I'm not sure how you missed this one... especially with all those vienna sausage chorus lines dancing on top! hahaha ;D Glad you enjoyed it!

I do prefer it with a simple fruit syrup - cherry or strawberry - have you had cheesecake ice cream? Amazing!

Haha, I wondered just how bad a cheesecake nightmare could be - but a SAVOURY cheesecake? With beets. Good god. A nice raspberry coulis will do me. Glad you addressed these issues in s poem Rhona!

It's okay- I would never do that to a cheesecake in real life!! (...Is "horror" a poetry genre?) ;D hahaha Raspberry coulis does sound good!

YES!!! Caramel sauce, cheesecake!!! Boy, who would put pickled beets and green olives on a cheesecake? That's a crime that should be punishable by law! I'm with the cheesecake on that one. Good one, Rhona I'm wanting cheesecake...

Thanks, ML!! I know... I want cheesecake, too (the caramel one- not the 'nightmare' kind)! ;)

This is hilarious, and on my FAV list. Personification poems are your forte, my Soul Sister! You do not have to give me any credit!
