Confessions of a Cereal Killer

To keep my movements moving, 
I begin each day,
with a doctored bowl of oatmeal, 
bland stuff, some'd say.

But not for me I spice it up, 
creative — like them poets.
(Really! Like the finicky ones,
the ones with all the know-its).

Agave nectar for sweet, 
peanut butter too,
a must for me it is, 
but maybe not for you.

Sometimes a touch of coconut, 
in the oil form,
it adds a bit of tropical, 
though it's not the norm.

Sprinkled with a dab of seeds, 
(sunflower, not in shell),
frequently my morning meal, 
is just this side of swell.

I forgot to mention, 
a microwave is used,
(to splatter oatmeal everywhere, 
as electrons get diffused)

to heat the stuff I eat each morn, 
(like sun on morning dew).
Since I never measure anything,
it sometimes turns to glue,

but I just pile on the almond milk, 
until it lightly sogs,
and snarf it up like royal fare, 
unfit, some'd say, for hogs.

How about raisins, crushed pecans and a dollop of brown sugar. Sometimes nutmeg and /or cinnamon and dollop of apple sauce. I love oatmeal and your poem!

All sounds good to me, especially peanut butter. I favour stirabout oats. Dark brown sugar and full fat milk, cream if I am especially naughty.
