A "Hole-y" Who Am I Poem

I am breakfast
while on the go.
I resemble
the letter O.

Despite my hole,
I do not leak.
Through my middle
you can peek.

I am eaten plain
or drizzled with icing.
Either way
I'm quite enticing.

Topped with sprinkles
or chopped nuts.
I've been known
to cause big butts.

Who Am I?

(Spoiler: Happy National Doughnut Day!)

  1. LOL. The big butts made me laugh. Happy National Donut Day. What a fun poem. I'm sure Hanson Gregory would eat it up. :)

  5. Why does all the good stuff cause big butts, that's what I want to know! My hubby and I had a big chuckle over this one, Bridget. (I'll take mine with custard, please.)

  7. I haven't had a doughnut in years... no sugar, no gluten, no doughnut. Sigh.
    It was still a cute poem, though!

    1. Oh no, Donna! Both my response to your comment and my longing for a doughnut have disappeared. =)
