Disowned Cakes

An unbaked cake
Eggless because you
Carry odd allergies.
Deprived of pastries,
Imagine that!

But perfected cakes
Now arrive
To a disowned platter,
Spoons and forks, knives
No tinkles and clinks.

This oven is rank
Stale and old and rusty,
From all these
Years of waiting
Mostly in vain.

Do they have cakes
In heaven or it's gates?
Is there a mailing service
To send these things
Your way?
