A visit to Yorkshire

Observe how cheesy biscuits
are neither sweet nor tart:
a monumental tribute
to the biscuit maker’s art

Observe in passing also
the crunchy Ginger Snap:
the kind of crisp confection
that put biscuits on the map.

To your left, the Macaroon,
to your right, the Puff.
We’ve been crafting biscuits
since Kipling was an oeuf.

That concludes our tour today;
we hope you have enjoyed it.
The exit’s through the Gift Shop:
there’s no way to avoid it.
