New York Bagel With A Schmear

by BeasPeas

'More Opinions, Politics & Comments' ~ #64-401-B

New York bagel with a schmear.
Take a number, wait your turn.
Feel your tummy start to churn
while bagel fever heats to burn.

Get a bagel with a schmear.
Have one toasted if you please,
then add butter for a tease,
thickly slather on cream cheese.

Buy your bagel with a schmear
from a shop where foodies flock.
Buy them till they're out of stock,
New York bagels ain't no schlock.

schmear ~ generous spread of cream cheese (Yiddish)
schlock ~ unworthy/sub par
foodies ~ people who love food

I lived on Long Island, NY for many years. I've been missing New York bagels. There's nothing like them that I've found anywhere else. Recently bought one here in Wisconsin where I live now. Bagel tasted like cardboard and had only a thin layer of cream cheese, definitely NOT the New York schmear. Thank you for reading.
