Donuts

by Barry Louis Polisar

Tomatoes from the garden are a summer treat
But it's a donut that I wanna eat;
Put 'em in your salad, put 'em in your stew,
Heat 'em and eat 'em with your barbecue.

Honey glazed or filled with jelly,
Gives life meaning as it fills your belly,
But be careful 'cause I swear that it'll
Give you a bulge right in your middle.
Just like life, so round and sweet;
Eat too many, it'll settle in your seat.

Don't feel sad or insecure;
Ain't nothing in the world that a donut won't cure.
Eat 'em with your meat loaf, eat 'em with your greens,
Eat 'em with your broccoli, eat 'em with your beans.

Matzo balls and chicken broth can help you through the croup
But I'd rather have a donut float in' in my soup;
Take em from the freezer; fry 'em on a griddle,
When the sugar melts, stick ice cream in the middle.
