'tween's response to a king cake surprise

raspberry and cream cheese swirling.
cinnamon roll decadence.
thick as paste.
sweet icing white, green and purple.
mouth-watering temptation.
feast before fast.
suzy 'tween waiting.
a piece for two.
savory delight.
careful.
slow.
mmm.
until.
teeth crunch down on plastic.
suzy's mouth opens.
pink plastic hits plate.
the singing begins:
"it was like
baby, baby, baby, oh...."

sorry for the repeated invitations.

I am going through magpie tale list, thus could not identify everyone one by one, please move that comment to trash.

regards.
