O. Henry, Afrite-Chef of all delight !
Of all delectables conglomerate
That stay the starved brain, and rejuvenate
The Mental Man: The esthetic appetite -
So long enhungered that the "inards " fight
And growl gutwise - its pangs thou dost albate
And all so amiably alleviate.
Joy pats its belly as a hobo might
Who haply bath obtained a cherry pie
With no burnt crust ner no seeds in it;
Nothin' but crisp crust, and thickness of it,
And squashin'-juicy, an' jes' mighty nigh
Too dratted drippin'-sweet for human needs,
But fer the sosh o' milk that goes with it.
- James Whitcomb Rilcy.
