A Stitch In Time

Ping! King Alfred opened the oven door
To reveal nine perfect cakes.
Oh, what a difference to history
A kitchen timer makes.

About the Poem

Poor King Alfred. Nobody really knows whether he burnt any cakes or whether the story is apocryphal - another lovely long word to look up while you've got the dictionary out.
