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!
