**Note: I know it isn’t ‘normal’ to compose poetry for your breakfast, so I was trying to keep this one under wraps…that is, until my lovely co-worker was sitting at my desk and I was trying to find a document and this popped open. It took her a few seconds, then she asked in a rather confused, yet concerned tone, “Did that say…Ode to Panera’s Pumpkin Muffin?!” Much giggling ensued. Thanks, Lisa :)**
Ode to Panera Pumpkin Muffins
Ode to Panera’s Pumpkin Muffins Oh, Panera Pumpkin Muffin – How I do love your spiciness! The smooth taste of pumpkin Tantalizes my taste buds; Panera Pumpkin Muffin, You are the pinnacle of pumpkin muffins. Your delightful crumbly top Complements my caramel latte. Your insides are squishy and moist, Your outside is crisp and golden. The orange glow of pumpkin is a beautiful sight To my sleepy morning eyes. I’ve tried to replicate you, Tried in earnest to make my muffins as delicious… I have failed, my pumpkin friend. Panera will remain the supplier To my guilty muffin habit… You go straight to my thighs, but I don’t care.
