A Plateful of Marshmallows

A plateful of marshmallows
Borne aloft on silver tray
Whisked along brocaded halls
Past visages of royal line

Fat, plump, pink and white and gay
O sugar dusted dumplings
Darlings of the queen’s delight
Favoured they of queenly sight

Enter now into the presence
Of the Queen resplendent
Precious with accoutrement
Jewels, gems, gold and essence

Servants close on every hand
Are ready for her bidding
Tis well known through all the land
She’s famous for her skidding

To an unexpected stop
proceedings of the nation
To sample from the very top
Marshmallow piled sensation

    Haha, this really took me by surprise. I was expecting something about marshmallows on stick over a campfire. :) Love your unexpected interpretation!!

  • Thanks Rebie, and there you go . . .you can never exactly predict what people are going to come up with next. It’s a magical mystery tour

    I have to agree with the ladies, never expected this but the fluff made it fun.. Nicely done!!

  • George . . .I hate to say this but I have found that agreeing with the ladies is one of the great secrets to a life of happiness. They never teach you this at school or whatever, but there it is. The other thing that seems to work well is disagreeing with them . . .but that’s another story. Thanks for the positive feedback

    This is definitely from left field…but that’s what makes it great…I read it like four times over and my grin grew bigger each time.

  • Yes Eric left field. That’s definitely me. i AM a leftie, in every possible way. I am so glad that you enjoyed this. I felt that the novel twist at the end helped it to come together adequately. many thanks
