Haul’em (Cream {Puff} Deferred)

(after Langston Hughes)

 

What happens to a cream puff, devoured?

Well it lies up
in my arteries, brazen and stunned,
Even when I CrossFit ’til I’m sore-
and then run.
Plus, it sinks (to my thighs) like submarines
And busts love handles over
my favorite jeans.

And then my butt sags
like a heavy load.

Oh, sugar overload!

    Langston Hughes’ original:

    Harlem
    (Dream Deferred)

    What happens to a dream, deferred?

    Does it dry up
    like a raisin in the sun?
    Or fester like a sore-
    and then run?
    Does it stink like rotten meat?
    Or crust and sugar over
    like a syrupy sweet?

    Maybe it just sags
    like a heavy load.

    Or does it explode?

  2. Nice!!! This is a great parody! Mine didn’t really end up being funny…at all. Oh well but on another note Ben and Jerry’s new Chocolate Therapy ice-cream…same thing happens with that stuff. SO amazingly decadent. :o
