Where would four and twenty blackbirds sing?
Where would little Jack Horner find a plum?
Who ever heard of Shepherd’s cake?
What would cows leave behind?
Would Marie Callender join the ranks of the unemployed at her delicate age?

Would we all be as American as apple strudel?
Chicken pot torte?
Minced meat muffin?
Lemon meringue fritter?
Banana cream scone?
A clown getting a soufflé in the face is not so funny
A quiche chart or graph?
Donut ala mode?
Who ever sat a pot roast on the window sill to cool?
An Eskimo pie would just be a plain ol’ ice cream sandwich
Would loved ones be called cutie roll?

Easy as… (what?)
