A Poem: Cake & Jameson 

I would like to, I would like to say,
It would change your world the whole damn day,
Everything would be better, better with a cake!
And Jameson!
So when you’re sittin’ there and lost your job,
And you’re lookin’ like a slob in your
Dirty bathrobe eating, eating Jujubes!
And Jameson!
Wouldn’t it be nice to hear a knock
From a member of your flock with a
Cake reading “Unemployment Please”?
And Jameson!
What about the friend that moved away?
What about a cake that’d say
“I really miss you and please enjoy the day!”
And…
And I would like to send with that cake a card saying,
“I know that we’ve been far and
I know I haven’t been around but
I’d like to be again… come ’round!”
And Jameson!
What about the lover you once know?
Wouldn’t it have been easy to make a cake-up
At break-up? In the color blue!
And say… Hey, I know we had good times,
But there was also too much strife and
Here’s a cake reading “Bachelor for Life!”
And Jameson!
So now you quit the band and nearly broke,
Don’t sit around doing coke, say how can I improve another,
Maybe, Maybe make a cake!
And Jameson!
Cakes are usually served at celebrations
But I really need then for mental vacations like,
“I really don’t like you but you’re still family!”
And…
And I would like to send with that cake a card saying,
“I know that we’ve been far but,
you try as you might…’cause…
We’ll have cake and shots tonight…
Of Jameson!”
