LET US EAT CAKE*
When the world around you is falling down,
And it’s disaster all around,
Do as I do, for heaven’s sake,
Have a little bite to eat,
And make it cake!
We like cake of every kind,
But chocolate is the best,
All my sons love Angel Food—
Me too, I must confess.
Whenever company comes to call,
Invited or otherwise,
Bring out a cake that’s freshly frosted,
Watch it light up their eyes.
No matter what the time of year,
No matter what the weather,
Slice up some freshly homemade cake,
It’ll make you feel much better!
Sandra Lee Smith
*Let us eat cake is actually a book title by author Sharon Bootstin
And is really a food memoir although it does contain some recipes.
