Long before it …

Long before it took hold

over your ——-

luxurious 

rolls off your tongue

swathe

          bathe

5000 years of history

none in your cuisine

a cherry on the icing

Remember the wonder?

that was a rhetorical

Question.

Norwegian snow on strawberries

Now everything’s made in China

i will always remember you,

my first piece of shortcake

Alas, I am lactose intolerant.
