Fruitcake, friend or foe?
This I wouldn’t know.
It was never in our house when I was small.
I’ve never eaten it at all.
I’ve never been the recipient of this peculiar holiday fare.
I think that’s ok and I don’t really care.
I’ve heard horror stories of a block that weighs a ton.
I’m not willing to break my tooth on one.
If you want to eat it, that’s fine with me
But I don’t need it under my Christmas tree.
