The Last French Fancy!


Last FancyYesterday afternoon Mrs Bard and I were in our favourite supermarket when my stomach announced that it needed a sugar rush! Being weak-willed I had no choice but to obey. Hence the trolley gained a box of 8 French Fancies. Within the hour 7 had vanished…

The last French Fancy in the tray,
Should I keep it for another day?
Or should I rescue it from being alone?
And give it a warm and comfortable home?
A realisation makes me stop,
Just an hour ago they were in the shop!
Now I know what I must do,
Eat the last remaining one too!
