Enjoy something sweet on Big Sky Buckeye and hopefully share a laugh with me! Due to his crusade against sugar (and successfully keeping his blood sugar under control), he cannot even remember the last time that such a treat touched his lips.
Simple, yet decadent pleasures they are
Being quite easy to locate from your car
Driving down the road each day
Now you wonder what it is, I say
The coffee’s on and ready to go
Include a doughnut for the road
Missing doughnuts for so many weeks
Passing them up is never for the meek
Call them “donuts”, many Americans say
For me, I prefer “doughnuts” to this day
My doctor instructs me, “No sugar for you!”
Now my doughnut days are sadly through
However, doughnut temptation sings a song
If I reach for one, there is a deafening gong!
Sorry mister, there will never be doughnuts for you
So I continue down the road, singin’ the sad blues
Who made the doughnut hole in the middle?
Now that has always been quite the riddle
Waking up in the middle of a lonesome night
Dreaming of doughnuts makes a sugary sight
While some folks are addicted to Krispy Kreme
My doughnut tastes envision a different theme
Boston Cream, Long John, and Jelly
All sound delicious to my hungry belly
Old-fashioned, Sour Cream, and Glazed
Why can’t I enjoy a simple one today?
Now in my car and hungrily driving at midnight
The Jolly Pirate Donut shop stays open all night
I pull into the empty parking lot with sad surprise
The sign reads, “Closed tonight”—alas no prize!
This poem could continue on and on and on for sure
Does anyone have a doughnut to share with this sir?
Here’s a final footnote:
In the classic film of “It Happened One Night”
Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert are a fright
Gable, the newspaper man, enlightens
Colbert, the heiress, never frightens
As they travel the back roads and stop
For a cup of hot coffee at a tiny shop
. . . with doughnuts for dunkin’
