Bread

english muffin bread (9)

The orders stack up.
Everybody is asking for bread.
Every day, same old thing:
More Bread!

My ovens are hot.
My dough is ready.
Come find me in my work.
Eating this won’t kill you.

Where your words come from,
add the slices there,
until you are filled.
Remember where you found me.

I have always loved baking.
People ask me for more.
This is how I get along with them.
Some call it love.
