Banana pudding

 

 
The
Banana 
Is
Walking 
His 
Pudding
 
A delicious treat, pudding.
It is the,
Food that fuels his,
Hunger, the flavor? Banana.
A reward for all this walking?
Delicious, pudding that is!
 
For it is,
This pudding,
That fuels his walking,
And it is the,
Banana,
He claimed as a favorite flavor of his.
 
For it is his,
That is,
Banana,
His favorite flavor of pudding.
It is the,
Only thing keeping him walking.
 
For as he is walking.
These steps of his.
Reflects the,
Composure that is,
His excitement for this treat, pudding,
Flavored banana.
 
He is the banana,
Leisurely walking,
For some more pudding,
That will soon be his.
That is,
If the,
 
Parlor is open for the banana.
For he is walking,
For his pudding.
