Oh Crepe

Carpe diem and a crepe

How did it get away

Sad lost opportunity

One fine late summers day

A delicate confection 

Made on a Paris street

Had I tried it I could tell you 

That it was light and sweet

Nutella with banana 

Why did I not partake

Sugar lemon—oh the tragedy 

Of choices that I make

Lamentably not hungry

Memory forever this will haunt

I’d stopped first at a bakery 

For a cinnamon croissant

How much would you change about your life to have it within reach again?<a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/out-of-reach/”>Out of Reach</a><a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/out-of-reach/”>Out of Reach</a>
