Dessert Island

I suspect that being shipwrecked

Would not be as bad as it seems

If I could crash on the dessert Island

That has haunted me in my dreams


In my pudding bowl boat I stay afloat

Paddling with my silver spoon

Until waves of syrup carry me over

Tumbling into a blueberry lagoon


Oh wondrous Isle!

Brimming with sweetness

Cherry-topped hills

Of ice creamy greatness


Brown sugar beaches

And candy cane trees

Filled with Jelly fishes

And apple crumble bumble bees


But until I discover this island that hovers

In the thought bubble above of my head

I'll go to the kitchen and make it my mission

To create a real dessert island instead.
