Humble Pie

A Shadorma

Image shows a man peaking above a table with a pie sitting on it. Only above his nose can be seen.

Humble Pie
Is the best dessert
Stuff your face
Eat it up
You can never have enough
Be grateful for it

Don’t be shy
It surely won’t hurt
Make some space
Fill you up
Sometimes this dish can be tough
Be grateful and sit
