A soft and flawless center with some crunch

Along the outer surface of the piece -

A perfect food for breakfast, snack, or lunch

Its textures meld in perfect harmony.

Delicious both with fruit and by itself,

It steals the spotlight in its subtle way,

And any condiment upon your shelf

Pairs beautifully on any given day.

Before discov'ring you, my life was bland;

Dull breakfasts I could hardly stand to bear.

Now, you have both my heart and my hand -

I never will stop loving you, I swear.

Till lactose intolerance do us part,

I give thee, buttered toast, my faithful heart.

Buttered toast, I love you. What was my life before you?
