Upside down and Backwards

You always wanted to be different

the other birds shook their heads at

Your topsy-turvy view of the world

but you always raised a smile

when the bottom of your seed tray appeared

Conjure

Conjure

Crafting a dessert, is a bit of a magic trick

Oranges sliced and pineapples diced get laid in a dish, and

Next comes the syrup and then the batter, before the dish is covered in foil

Just before the dish is put in the oven – four holes are made to let out steam

Until its time – for it to be turned upside down and

Royally presented to all sat at the table

Excited little ones ask – can i have custard with mine ?
