Recipe For disaster – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Recipe – V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #28





Recipe For Disaster

There was no baking powder,
so I added a cupful of ego or two,
dropped in some overconfidence and,
added a dash of not listening,
some overthinking drops,
even though they were out of date,
it didn’t mix well,
faring worse in cooking.
