Oatmeal, the Raisin Cookie

The following filk developed last weekend in the thick of Christmas Cookie baking. You may appreciate the irony of "healthy cookies"...


Oatmeal, the Raisin Cookie

With apologies to Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, Rudolph, Kris, Burl, and the Singing Cowboy, himself...


There are Cardamom Spice Rounds, and Cheese Straws, and Spritzen
Chocolate chippers and others with mix-ins
But even at Christmas we bake
The "most healthy" cookie, by Jake!

Oatmeal, the Raisin Cookie
Had a very bumpy top
And once you bit into it,
You would never, ever stop


Gingerbread Men and Women
Used to laugh and call it names
Sandies and Snickerdoodles
Couldn't understand its fame.


Once a quack examined it, exclaiming from the start
"Oat's soluble fiber means it is healthy for your heart!


"Never mind fats and sugars, excess carbs or calories
Oatmeal, the Raisin Cookie must be eaten lib'rally!"
