One Perfect Pancake

A child with newly acquired braces

Hoping to close up too wide spaces

Now teeth very sore

What to eat anymore

Soft foods aren’t filling- that’s what the case is


Pancakes! A solution suggested

Comfy to chew and thus ingested

That’s easy enough 

I take out all the stuff

Discern- in eggs I should have invested


My resources will allow for just one

One pancake I say “could be fun!”

I’ll make by far the best

Pancake put to the test

Had Al Gore been that pancake he’d have won

The perfect pancake is really an art

You need the right pan before you can start

Heat pan test: take no chance

Drop water- it should dance

Grab the mix, you can do this! Take heart.


The pan is perfect on medium low

Every drop poured onto the pan below

Clarity color cut carat

This flapjack has merit

I watch it bubble with air… Oh no


I remembered then what I had forgot

Grease the pan- (anguish despair) I did not

So it’s safe to say

Diner pancakes are okay

There was a lesson in this I thought

~Maybe not
