How to Make a Space Cake
Second Place - Write On Instructional Poem Competition at The School for Young Writers
Take some Milky Way dust
Mix in some galaxies
Wrench some light from inside a black hole
It should be spaghettified and tender
Knead in some rusty coloured Mars dust
Scrape some liquid iron from the centre of Mercury
Plop it in before it hardens
Fire the dough at the sun
Let is sizzle before taking it out
Sprinkle on stars
to make the Space Cake shine.
Alice McPike from Arrowtown School
