Ode to Debbie

I wrote this poem a few years ago.

Two oatmeal cookies, with cream layered in between,

The world has yet to find a more satisfying cuisine.

The Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pie, a snack above the rest,

Perfect when you’re happy, even better when you’re depressed.

Flour, sugar, water, oats, all mixed to the right consistency,

And just to kick it up a notch, a dash of Polysorbate 60.

They are baked, assembled, cooled, and then neatly stacked,

Into their container they go, 12 per box, individually wrapped.

Its nutritional value is certainly nothing to snub at,

A mere 370 calories, and only 14 grams of total fat.

Any normal person will agree, whether an adult or a youth,

The Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pie will satisfy any sweet tooth.
