Krispy Kreme Donuts

Wednesday April 20, 2022 Prompt via Bartholomew Barker that was a combo of the NaNoWriMo prompt and the April Poem-a-Day Challenge prompt from Write Better Poetry.
Write a poem that anthropomorphizes a kind of food, using at least three of the following six words; or go for extra credit and use all six: Content, Double, Guide, Meet, Pump, Suit.

Content I was without it
In fact, I could nearly fit
into my new double breasted suit.

But no, you had to guide me to where that chocolate meets the top of that luscious glazed air baked donut, shop.

The one that pumps air into their
donuts, making them light and
fluffy and sweet and oh so good.

Foul thing you are, you heavenly
warmed, melted chocolate
running down the glazed donut sides.

Calling to me in my waking hours,
beckoning me in the night to eat,
eat, even as that blasted insulin needle
sticks!

  1. I love jam doughnuts (jelly doughnuts I believe in the US). One supermarket chain here do the best, with strawberry or raspberry jam, chocolate, caramel, custard, apple or lemon filling, but at Halloween they do a green goo filling which is raspberry and pineapple jam (why green I have no idea) which is delicious.
