We love our pies
Fried with butter
Hear their cries
Our hearts aflutter
Make them, sell them
Give ‘em to your mutter
Not a one, can we condemn
Better than bread and butter
Dutch apple, cherry
Raspberry, coconut cream
Take a bite, please don’t tarry
See your smile, face all abeam
Each a favorite, to someone
Pick a pie that speaks to you
Buy that apple for your son
Send that blueberry to Katmandu
Eastern Star, since 1958
Those pies they bake
We can appreciate
Buy one now, for our sake
Written for Della Murphy and her
Eastern Star chapter, Lexington, OK.

Dan: Thanks. Silly poem, but hopefully it helps the Eastern Star ladies sell more pies.
Aurora: Thanks Aurora. Light[hearted it is. Glad you enjoyed Bottled Butterfly.
Now I want pie. 🙂
Light-hearted poem, Don. By the way, I finished Bottled Butterfly last night. You and your wife were right – it’s good! I’m now going to lend it out to a few people.
Floots: This poem was requested by this woman, Della, who wanted something to read at an honoring event for Eastern Star woman she works with. She wanted something light and funny. Pie does sound good though!!
Andrew: Thanks. Have a midnigt snack. A big dagwood sandwich!
the secret of pi(e) has always facinated me 🙂
This is the 2nd poem I’ve read tonight that are about food. It’s killing me! It’s 12:30 AM and is too late to eat! 🙂
