A Poem

by Becky Lakaner

Down in the valley,
In Colorado Springs,
A woman gave Johnny Fry
some biscuits
That looked like rings.
But Johnny could not stop to eat
For he worked on the Pony Express.
So she invented the doughnut,
Which he very blessed.
The woman was his girlfriend
Who loved him very much.
And Johnny was the guy who
Loved her biscuits very,
Very much.
She slipped them on his fingers,
As he rode by.
"I savored them every moment"
Said Grandpa Johnny Fry.
