A wish to bring you a yummy gift
Something to give your spirits a lift
I inquired, curious — what might that be?
You replied “cheesecake!” immediately
“Of course,” I exclaimed
a thrilled smile on my face
Cheesecake, cheesecake
I know just the place
Omni Cafe, consider it done
Omni Cafe
best cheesecake bar none!
May I propose doctors write cheesecake prescriptions
to ward off malaise and all other afflictions
A novel cure of sorts, an elixir to feel well
Decisions to be made!
Oreo, chocolate mousse or caramel?
