UNLEADEN BREAD


My girlfriend has given me up for Lent --
Eating only, "unleaden bread,"

I asked her, "How would I know it was leaden?" --
This is what the lady said:

"Nuts, dates and 'nanners can give it much body --
Add soddenness as well,

But for baking something weighty to go beside your plate we
Will add everything except the old dinner bell."
