You are quite an ugly muffin
Looking shameful next to the scones
Looking homely next to the banana nut bread
A cup cake gone horribly wrong
You lack pizzazz, and zip
Blueberries? Is that all?
The banana nut bread has banana and nuts, you know.
Lumpy mounds of dirt
Peaks and valleys on your top
Not smooth,
Not even triangular like the scone.
Scone sounds so European, so refined
Muffin sounds nomadic, coarse.
Are you worth it?
Are you worth $3.50?
I could get a doughnut for less
And yet,
With all your ugly, homeliness
I find something wholesome
Comforting me,
I am not a cupcake, scone, or banana nut bread girl,
I will take that ugly, only blueberry, wholesome muffin
