Toad In A Hole

Toad In A Hole

I was informed Yesterday
By Nigel
That a hole
in Britain  
contained a Toad
Ironically
though Americans
do not deal
with such a Confectionary tale,
our bakery manifestations
however do involve
Pigs covered in Blankets

Food for comfort
with names
that deliver
a calmness
to what
partaking
in them
pertains

Simplicity
in what we do
often provides
peace
