German Chocolate Cake

Always sings happy birthday to me.

My grandmother always made one,

made it from scratch,

just for me to see.

German Chocolate Cake

marks the years as they go by.

One cake, two cakes,

birthdays, gifts and wrinkles, oh my!

When I was three

my mother once spanked me!

I turned around,

and said with a frown,

“wadya do that for?”

I may have been short.

I may have been loud.

…but for whatever reason…

I stood stiffly

and proud.

She said she figured

out pretty quick.

a pat on the rump

wasn’t going to do the trick.

I don’t think she even noticed

how it should come to be

that this very apple

didn’t fall far from her tree.

Sounds, calming,

I said.

Come along.
