The delight of eating an everything bagel with cream cheese.

Everything Bagel so toasty and warm

Slathered with soft cream cheese

So white against your toasted brown

As I indulge in my very first bite

The cream cheese feels smooth and

Slightly tart blending with your varied

Flavors dancing across my taste buds

The combination delights my appetite

And fills my mouth to the point of rapture

With each and every bite of your symphony

The opus of onion blended with garlic

Issuing from your slightly chewy bulk 

As each bite my teeth tear from one 

Then the other of your round halves 

Alas, too soonI have devoured your

Helpless, or is it your willing, entirety

Down to the last sesame and caraway seed.

I'l have poppy seed bagel or onion bagel. The everything bagel has to much going on for me.

I really prefer Cinnamon Raisin but occasionally indulge in the Everything just for a change of pace.
