"...With blades to chop and blend just right..." - a rhyming poem.
|Sammy Groff just loved to cook,
Had a tireless passion for baking cakes –
An expert chef who could follow a book,
Didn’t mind the clean-up that cooking takes.
But this glorious chef needed a mixer,
For his old one was sluggish and frail,
So he gathered some of his saved legal tender
And went shopping for a value and a sale.
Sammy browsed many a store,
Looking for a mixer to bring him delight;
Finally, he found a kitchen tool that’s more,
With blades to chop and blend just right!
Groff was thrilled with his new appliance,
It worked so smoothly, reliably, and fast,
Baking was easy, much less of a science,
And with the warranty, was built to last!
This fabulous chef was certainly in luck,
He’d found the ideal appliance for baking
Rich, tasty desserts by spending a buck
For a perfect mixer, all his for the taking…
For this is how one’s love is designed,
A sparkling choice for a hobby or gift,
Giving yourself or someone a stellar find,
Their heartfelt emotions, a joyous lift!
But money’s an object for this kind of giving,
You should always seek value at a reasonable cost;
Know what possessions warrant extravagant living,
Or your pride and vanity will surely be lost…
