Yams and Hatters


I am what I am
my name is no matter,
I might be a yam
Or perhaps the mad hatter
measuring your noggin
Upon which i crown
A fun feathered derby
To wear around town.

But, if really, i am a yam
then cover me with butter
sprinkle on some cinnamon
and of course
some good old brown sugar.

Take up the delicious tuber
and bake it good and done
slather on the butter
and slice it like a bun;
offer it some cinnamon
and smother it with sugar.
Sweet creamy carotene-orange
with a fork she made her mark
tastes so good and good for you too.
And now she can see in the dark.
