Oatmeal

 

Oatmeal

there’s nothing like it 

oatmeal 

with brown sugar 

     and cream 

oatmeal 

there’s nothing like it 

with maple syrup 

     and mixed berries 

or with bananas 

     and milk and honey 

there’s nothing like it 

oatmeal 

versatile oatmeal 

with raisins 

     and cinnamon sugar 

there’s nothing like it

(Today’s breakfast was a Viator poem – my first attempt at this form today shifts the refrain in each line to the next sequenced line in each stanza where the refrain is always the final line of the poem)
