The Ballad of a Doughnut

There once was some dough

that went through a process.

Was born once again

in a form the was new.

All started out well

for the newly made doughnut

until it was heated

and eaten by you.

I Wish

I wish I had a billion $100 dollar bills in my closet.

I wish I had strength.

I wish I had more genies.

I wish I had a pet squirrel.

I wish I had a multi billion dollar company.

I wish I had a white wooly yak named Will.

I wish had a doughnut.

I wish I had a magic wand

to make all my wishes

come true.
