For morning’s breakfast I prepare a snack
Of half a poppy covered bagel, so
I can survive the day. And then, I lack
The most important part: cream cheese, oh no!
I search the fridge without delay for my
Cream cheese. It’s not behind the pickles or
The pears! It’s not atop my apple pie!
This sucks! My luck is horrid, not just poor!
My eyes look past the capers for a spread;
A back-up can’t be found! No meat, no cheese
Can swap for it. Should I eat rice instead?
The cream cheese gods will not return my pleas!
But, there’s no time to find something better,
So I give up! And I apply butter.
