The Gift That Keeps On Giving (limerick)

One present that I will revere

This treasure from my brother dear

My tears I did stave

A fruitcake I’d rave

The same one I gave him last year

The Fruicake Song - (No! not about me.)

If you had a homemade cake, it would never leave the house under penalty of death.

There is something about fruitcakes. You either love them or hate them.

Given adequate bourbon or rum marinade, it could last indefinitely;- though it might even be eaten under those conditions!
