Ode to Trifle

by Liam Wrigley

Custard, sponge, cream and jam,

Some of my favourite flavours,

Custard, sponge, cream and jam,

A portrait is made out of layers.

 

There are fires over the Nile,

And dreams pile up during the night,

But I can’t see them and so I smile,

This kitchen is musty and bright.

 

Custard, sponge, cream and jam,

I lift up my spoon and know who I am.
