FALSE PRETENSE

Folder: 
PAST POMES

 

Well, they say,

you can’t have your cake

and eat it, too.

 

Well, I don't know

what exactly that means

or even sure if

it’s worth the effort of knowing.

 

Some people talk just

 for the sake of talking

and like clever phrases

to sound intelligent.

 

They don’t--

 

but neither do I

when I waste my time

ranting about them.

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I'm as full of shit as anyone else out there.  It's just that I've learned to laugh at myself for it.

Give Em Cake, Baby!

Comedian Billy Connolly takes light of the literal meaning with this phrase in his spiel "14 Things I Hate", by responding "What good is a cake if you can't eat it?"
