Pecan Tart Rhyme

It seems only fitting that considering in September, there was a cake daily prompt that tart should be given equal standing. I must have missed π (pie).  

 

Pecan Tart Rhyme

I said he looked a tad pasty;

he wanted to discuss pastry.

He said his favorite tart was cherry,

mine was pecan. He looked wary.

He said, “That’s a tree nut”

with condescension, a rooster strut.

Why do non-southerners not understand

how the pecan is like contraband,

its ability to roast to perfection

its ability to make any confection

just a bit extraordinary.

He said what about blackberry

lingonberry, black cherry, raspberry,

are you saying that these are ordinary?

I sighed, tired of the parry, I must depart

I’m off to procure a pecan tart.
