Lemon Tarts And Oatmeal Cookies

Life’s not always peachy keen or cherries in a bowl Often, just the stems and fuzz are left to heal your soul Yes, perhaps a lemon tart has puckered up your lips Perhaps, the apple of your eye just ate your bag of chips None-the-less, it’s worth the work No sour grapes to spoon Even when you’re getting old your plum can be a prune And so your shrunken raisins are now filling up your plate Make some cookies, have some fun Remember “it’s a date”!
