SOME DAYS THERE’S PIE

SOME DAYS THERE’S PIE

Some days there’s not a lot to eat,
Maybe soup made from a bone
And ma will make up sandwiches,
That I like to eat alone.
Some days there ain’t no jelly,
And I gotta eat it plain,
And ma keeps saying things’ll get
Better soon again.
I feel my stomach growling
As I’m walking off to school,
I think that I could eat a horse,
But I’m nobody’s fool
No one eats a horse, you know,
How would you get around?
My stomach’s growling louder,
I hope no one hears the sound.
I think of eggs and bacon
Of bowls of shredded wheat,
I think of all the different things
That I would like to eat,
Some days we don’t have nothin’
But I wouldn’t tell a lie,
When things are not so tough at home,
Well, some days we have pie.

  1. Hi Sandra!
    It’s been a while since I stopped by and I’ve been enjoying all the recipe poems. It’s a nice way to remember a recipe. I never knew there were recipes in poem form.
    Talk to you later,
    Anna

  2. I’ve come back today to read some more! There’s something about cooking that calms the soul. I find it very comforting. My cookbook collection is probably testament to that!

    Happy Sunday,
    Anna
