The Journey of a Cake

A journey lasts as long as baking cake. Plane

Ingredients are gathered, items got.

An oven hot is like a plane to take.

The clothes are packed, the items mixed you bought.

 

A beep, a time to enter in a plane,

An oven. Time then passes. Boring. Play

Some games, watch TV dull and bore your brain.

A ding, a landing. Out comes cake, so – Yay!

 

You wait for heat to dissipate, for bags

To come along. Then Joy, delicious fun!

Oh! But it leaves a mess when vigor flags.

A break from fun is needed. Baked vacation done.

 

A journey lasts as long as baking cake,

And now a mess. So then you need a break.

 

This is written for the Poetry 101 class in Daily Post’s Blogger University. The topic was “journey” and we were supposed to use a simile. I’m not sure if it stayed a simile or sort of morphed into a metaphor. What do you think?
