John The Baker
Rhyme from Katashi Tales
Written by Shiju H. Pallithazheth
John was a man so grim,
who lived in a house with light so dim.
He was a baker, who liked to chatter,
serving all his cakes on a platter.
A man who was full of sugar,
making sure all his cakes were sugared.
He came home early one day with a shirt so wet,
Not due to rain, but all his sweat.
By error, he baked cakes not with sugar, but full of salt, and put his reputation forever on halt.
He heard his customers all yell,
Making him return home, the shop being his hell.
John the man so grim, never baked a cake thereafter,
And this story ended hereafter.
