Icing

coconut cupcake cat

You’re the icing on my cake
Luscious swirl of buttercream
No need for extra sprinkle shake
You’re the icing on my cake
I can’t resist that coconut flake
It’s the topping of my dream
You’re the icing on my cake
Luscious swirl of buttercream

  6. Well done! I love the triolet form. When we’re restricted to 44 words it seems counter-intuitive to repeat lines, but you’ve just proved that it works beautifully.

  7. I love it. The repetition works so well. Does your cat have a sweet tooth?? :>)

  8. The two forms blended well and this made me hungry. Looks like I may have to compete with a kitty for cake though.
