Sweet Potato Pancakes at 7 AM

By Jeffrey Pillow on September 27, 2012 — 1 min read

Sweet potato flap jacks
and bacon fat
sizzle on the stove top
As an eager child
grips her fork,
readied in hand and the grease
goes splat right off the pan

Splitter, SPLAT
The migration to plate
as hungry bellies await
and milk is served in sippy cups
and orange juice poured —
Breakfast is served
Now give your grace
to the Great Spirits above.
