Just Desserts

I admit from the start that some of you will just shake your head in disbelief, others will groan and some will even share this as part of the "trick" in trick or treat. All I can say is that I had too much haloween candy and was out of my mind.

Just Desserts

Down in San Antonio,
there’s a battle that’s intense.
But for those who aren’t from Texas
it may not make much sense.

The standoff all got started
with two cowboys eating lunch.
At first they started bickering
then one guy threw a punch.

When the reason for their dust up
was reported in the news,
the community was split apart;
each side with different views.

I’m sure you won’t believe this
but it’s true, I wouldn’t lie.
The war of words is all about
the way to eat fruit pie;
Hot with cold ice cream on top
or simply serve it plain.
The not so civil war of words
has sparked an old refrain.

Newspaper editorials
in bold face type, I’m told
support ice cream, by saying
"Remember the Ala Mode."
