Sheet Cake

By Fabrice Poussin

Sheet Cake

Hmmm ... no I don't mean yum!
I mean Hmmm
Cause I am thinking
A sheet cake
What a name
What an idea
And a concept
Like sheet metal
Sheet music
Too much for me
A whole sheet?
All I want is a taste
A delicate spoonful
Not a whole sheet
Oh! Someone wrote on the sheet
How sweet, how kind
How thoughtful
And how weird
So now a sheet
On which to write
Hmmm, there I go
Thinking again
Could I write a novel?
On a cake
Or a lifetime?
A moment on the lips ...
A lifetime ... yeah that's it
A whole story
A whole life
An entire civilization
On a sheet
A small page
Not even a chapter
In a book
So much weight
In existence
And to eat
Well I guess
We live
For all big things
In our industry
Why go for a piece?
When you can have a whole pie
Marie Antoinette ponders
Ah! For such a sheet
I would have lost my head
And still lived
