Ode to a bread pudding
The story behind the poem

A Bread Pudding is a curious creature... you basically grab a loaf of bread, soak it in water, squeeze it out, mash it up with currants, sultanas and spices and then bung it into the oven... and I absolutely hate it! However I worked with a guy called George Quinn who loved it and brought some in to work every day. Knowing that I dabble in poetry somebody challenged me to write about a Bread Pudding and this was what came out of the oven of my brain after about 40 minutes at 190 C. (A fan-assisted brain would have probably been a little quicker.)
