Life's a Loaf: a metaphor poem about bread and growing old

Updated: Jun 26, 2023

Who knew I 'kneaded' to create a bread metaphor poem about growing old.


Life’s a Loaf


When you’re old and stale

And yellowy pale

When your crust goes hard

And you’re stiff as card

When you’re Scary Slice

And you don’t look nice

When you’re not the most

Then you know you’re toast


Mark Bird



three slices of white toast
When you know you're toast
