A poetic response to The Metaphor by Budge Wilson

Birthday Cake

The intoxicating sweet taste
Miniature explosions on your taste buds
Layers of rich sponge cake
Soaked with orange essence
The richness of the buttercream bringing everything together
In every mouthful a new experience
Giving me joy and positive thoughts
But you can't eat cakes your whole life you know
You have to eat your vegetables to balance your diet
