Without Fire!

'No smoke without fire' you say,
Well, here I prove you wrong.
Judging by the 'smoke' we see,
The fire should be hot and strong!


I'd rather BE a Fruitcake, than just eat one.
You can recognise a Fruitcake when you meet one.
A Fruitcake's slightly dotty,
In fact a Fruitcake's potty,
Even though you very often meet a sweet one!
A human Fruitcake sees life slightly dented,
Sort of curly at the edges and fermented.
A Fruitcake is quite loopy,
But rarely sad and droopy,
And it's odd the way a Fruitcake seems contented.
So spurn those fruitcakes filled with nuts and butter,
Though they make your greedy heart go all a-flutter.
Concentrate on human kind
And I'm certain that you'll find,
Life's better with a crazy human Nutter!

Wonderful words. I personally love fruitcake. I think I must be the only one in my part of the world who does!

Wonderful smoke without fire, Brenda. And I have often been called a fruitcake, among other things. One of my high school teachers, who died this month at the age of 93, was a charming man who called me a yo-yo. He said I was always up or down but never in between. And for years I had friends who called me Diz, although I'm sure I don't know why.

A thoroughly enjoyable post for today, Brenda. Thanks.
