The Ballad of the Pie Ladies
From South Dakota the tradition did arrive,
A neighborly exchange, the giving of pie.
A way to say thank you that just grew and grew,
With a simple desire to each year out do.
They started with apple, then branched out to berries,
Until pleas came in from a few of the fairies.
These cherries and berries are staining our teeth!
So they switched back to apple, to keep the peace.
In the heat of delivery drag faces may sag,
And a high heel may break under all of the weight.
Yet nothing will stop these ladies in wigs,
Seventy pies delivered with a jig and a swig.
All around town, a pie promenade.
By barge, via car, or even a trolley.
A drag queen brigade.
Outrageous pie folly!
Naturally they all want to pose for a phota.
This year they even snagged one with Hoda.
For a decade now they’ve delivered us pie.
A delicious way to celebrate fourth of July.
