Please write a poem that makes an apology

– You may not include the words “I’m sorry.”

– You must include the word “butter” or “dinosaur.”

– You must include the name of a state

– 3,3,3,4




I know how you so love

the chewy deliciousness of

a fresh, oatmeal raisin cookie.


I know how you like the taste,

the mellow hints of butter,

the tangy burst of tiny fruits.


I know how these circular delights

tempt you so, how you searched for

them longingly at that famous New York bakery.


I know all about your deep

affections for the delectable treats.

Yet there is only one left on the

plate, and I simply cannot help myself.
