Bananas that are too old by two days

In customary spooning fashion lay.

They’re ready to be taken up and peeled

and placed in mixing bowl to make a yield

of creamy smooth conglomeration sweet

with ova of Rhode Island Red (that’s two)

and sixteen ounces sugar you must beat

with half a cup of shortening in the brew.

To this you add the grindings of some wheat,

that’s twenty ounces added to make paste,

some baking soda (half a teaspoon neat)

and sodium chloride to make it taste.

The oven causes, by producing heat

reincarnation of the golden treat.
