Not my favourite type of pie. I much prefer rhubarb
With a touch of ginger. Tart but warming.
Or apple, sprinkled with cinnamon. Sweet but spicy.
Humble pie is bitter, sour tasting.
No matter what flavour it is topped with.
I swallow it with dread. And it goes over in lumps,
Choking on the way down.
But, once consumed,
It tastes sweeter, more full of flavour
Than any other.
For it means I had to say,
‘I’m sorry. I was wrong.’
As tough as that is to do, as hard as the crust may be-
It cuts at the throat –
To move on, it is necessary.
No matter what pie you love,
