What is a puff?

a gentle wind on Blashford Lake
dragging on a cigarette for a break

a magic dragon from Honah Lee
a whispy cloud that you can barely see

a sound that's so evocative
of an old steam locomotive

a saucy siren who won't go on show
without her trusty powder puff glow

because the little pig's house was of sterner stuff
the big, bad wolf needed more than a huff

layers of pastry lightened with air
thank goodness these biscuits are oblong, not square

Biscuit: Blueberry Puff
Taste test: 8 out of 10

  1. What's in those puffs man? You require the opium addled mind of Keats to find the true meaning of this poem.


Please tell us what you think about our poems and the biscuits
