What maneuvers can gingerbreads do?
It depends, entirely on you.
Whether it's made into a cookie or a house,
doing the nooky shouldn't be spooky.

In many sizes, shapes, and forms,
gingerbreads make no guise,
pretending to be what they're not;
this is what they've been taught.

They'd probably describe some nice little creek,
if they were given the chance to speak;
it's where they'd go to collect their thoughts,
they'd jot down their dreams to form some teams.

Beautifying their tables with napkins and more,
they'd brighten up kitchens with colors galore.
Everything's perfect, nobody will fight;
the cooks are happy, filled with delight.

Touching our lives with joy and contentment,
there isn't room for any resentments;
there's only room to express your sentiments.
It's great to be loved by gingerbreads!

When dreariness appears, it's quite a feat;
they do their best when kitchens are lighted.
Gingerbread maneuvers get me excited,
when people are fed, it's cheery inside.
