For Chemistry Tests and Angry Days
Obama, please come to dinner.
You’ve just won the election, and we’re mainly vegetarian, but, I think you’re up for it.
We have a new apartment, and it’s very spacious.
Everyone in our neighborhood has been screaming your name, but if you come, I’ll make enough food for all of your secret service, too.
And apple pie, because it’s American.
The trick is cinnamon.
And not punching the pastry to death.
