Perfect for Any Occasion

1.

Pies have a reputation.
And it’s immediate—no talk of potential


Regarding a pie. It’s good
Or it isn’t, but mostly it is—sweet, very sweet


Right then, right there, blue and red.
It can’t go to junior college,


Work hard for the grades,
Work two jobs on the side.


It can’t slowly build a reputation
And a growing client base.


A pie gets one chance
And knows it, wearing as makeup


Those sparkling granules of sugar,
As a collar those diamond cutouts


Bespeaking Fair Day, felicity, contentment.
I tell you everything is great, says a pie,


Great, and fun, and fine.
And you smell nice, too, someone says.


A full pound of round sound, all ahh, all good.
Pies live a life of applause.
