April Poem-A-Day Challenge: Day 1

The Donut Tree

Grow your own donut tree
Folks, right here’s the key
This tiny round seed
Grows up into a donut tree
Yes, siree

Cinnamon, sprinkle, custard, creme—
Try a bite and you’ll agree
This donut’s the ideal
Start to any meal!

Young man, step up and see
Feel these leaves so feathery
And taste this donut sweet as honey
Perfect for afternoon tea
Just like they do in Hawaii

Yes, siree
I guarantee ain’t nobody seen
Such a soft, tasty donut tree
Ma’am, these donut seeds
Come direct from Tennessee

Buy one for your sonny
Today, I’ll sell it to you cheap
Grow him his own grand donut tree!
