love and heretics

It's better to light a candle than curse the darkness

The Doughnut

The doughnut

There is a doughnut that all can see.
Chocolate icing we all agree
deep fried , round, shaped like a ring
but the hole, now that’s another thing.

Unseeable to the naked eye,
give your inner eye a try
all one must do is believe
the hole is there don’t be naive

Invisible, untouchable, and yet they know
what fills the opening makes one whole
Hallelujah, praises be,
we once were blind but now we see.

Some see only the deep fried dough.
It’s good, yes, but no Van-Gogh
Prove its there? well, try a bite
we won’t tell. It’s all right.

Ah, the ring, its not enough?
Can’t enjoy it without invisible stuff?
well, by the stars that’s rough!~
Maybe add a cream puff?


  1. Well done!
    Wise cracks in rhymes. Very cool.

    • …hee…thanks guys. Had someone harassing me to prove naturalism was real. Tried posting with reason and intellectual honesty, and respect, then finally gave up attempting to explain, and this was my last reply. Lol. Its was too fun to not share.

  2. Really like this. 🙂 ( meaning: I wish I’d written it. 🙂 )

    • Thank you for such kind words! Can you tell I have been reading shel silverstein lately? : D

      • I did read some of his poems to my students years and years ago when I taught. But haven’t given much thought lately. A great model to follow. IMHO. 🙂
