Intro to Poetry – Day Seven – Flavor

Raspberry Jam

Why add raspberry jam to cookies?

I hate raspberry jam

Jam is alright on cookies

Wouldn’t it be nicer to add the flavor of another fruit?

Is it the color or the seeds?

Whatever the excuse

I hate raspberry jam in cookies.

Even more so in a dessert than a cookie

Why not used strawberry or blackberry Jam

Or dare

I compare

Other fruit with raspberries

Maybe blackberries are too dark a fruit and will spoil the appeal of a cookie

We can always make excuse for everything

But it still stands for me

I hate the flavor of raspberry jam on my cookies.
