Shall I compare thee to a jelly-filled donut?
Thou art enticing and mysterious,
Tiger claws and crullers with nothing to hide,
Your jelly-filled secrets solved in a well-placed bite.

Sometimes so plentiful the colorful center,
Sometimes too abundant the fluffy golden shield;
And every glaze and powder can accentuate,
By chance, or sometimes distract from truest taste.

But thy secret filling shall never upset
Nor lose interest of thou so intriguing;
Nor shall bitter fruit ruin true depth,
When in another bakery, none are equal.

This is based off of Shakespeare's original "Shall I Compare Thee..." poem, written for my Creative Writing class.
