As part of the second annual Donut Summit yesterday at Elysian Park, we continued in the tradition of fine pastry-inspired wordsmithing in the form of haiku and limerick. With more than a baker’s dozen of submissions to the contest, Donut Summit attendees had ample opportunity to savor each other’s images and rhymes. We asked for a show of applause to select from the top three submissions (two haiku and a limerick), and a the limerick entitled The Babysitter by James P won out by just a few confetti-colored sprinkles. Click past the jump for a taste of this delicious fritter.
I once had a cute babysitter
Whose perfume smelled just like apple fritter
She came over one day
While my folks were away
And she smelled so delicious I bit her.
Congratulations to James, and thanks to our runners-up and all other poetry contributors.
