The Greatest Culinary Invention Ever (New Poem)
The Apex, the Epitome, the Acme, the Climax, the Peak . . .
There, in that glass case at Garman Model Bakery,
Pride of Painesville, the Peak of Pastry,
The climax of American Culinary Art:
A ladyfinger, éclair par excellence,
Stuffed with crème,
Frosted with maple,
Crowned with a six-inch long
Strip of bacon.
What can you say but
God Bless America!
