Better Make it 3 Dozen ( for Mr. Sweet)

Mr. Sweet of
& company, won’t
be called David.
Not when he’s toting cookies
and pie

most of the ground audience
have finished their
sandwiches & pasta


the talk of pie is starting to sound pretty good

under certain benches of
different on lookers, are bottles
of white wine-
maybe, Mr. Sweet….
a bit of cheese to go with the wine
and the pie, old of course
crumbly white
& for the kids, a splash
of milk
to accompany the cookies.
A reward,
for sitting up straight


listening to the short hand stories by scruffy men
and beautiful women

– ah,there’s always next year of course.
