“Pie Ala Mode Ode”

My palinode:  pie ala mode
had earlier affection
but now my waist measures such taste
with bold discrimination.

A palinode or palinody is an ode in which the writer retracts a view or sentiment expressed in an earlier poem.  Ogden Nash wrote a palinode in relation to his most famous poem about the dandiness of candy, and quickness of liquor:

“Nothing makes me sicker
than liquor
and candy
is too expandy”
