"There remains a conflict between past pain and future desire, but pain is swallowed by desire."

In a bowl add 1 box of cake mix, 2 eggs, ¼ cup of vegetable oil,
And ½ cup of milk
Use a fork, whisk, or cake beaters to blend
The mixture until it is smooth as silk

While this process goes on
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
Be careful and don’t burn yourself
Be sure to roll up your sleeves

Pour the mixture into a rectangular 8x10 pan
Made of foil
If its non-stick don’t worry but if it isn’t
Line it with a layer of oil

After this make sure
All the batter is in the pan
Use your rubber spatula
To get the soon to be cake as even as you can

Then, gently slide it into the over
Wear mitts to prevent getting burned
That way if you bump the shelf or side
There’s no need for concern

When that’s finished
Set a timer for 45 minutes
Pretty soon you’ll hear a chime
Letting you know the cake is finished

But until then you have to wait
As the aroma begins to wrap itself around your nose
In your hair, and the threads of your clothes
All you can do is anticipate

Ring-Ring-Ring chimes the timer
Letting you know its time to retrieve your creation
Time to taste the cake
And it’s moist sensation

But before this can take place
Before you can have this first taste
The cake has to cool
Sorry got to follow the rules!

One the temperature decreases
Add frosting if you want
And cut to pieces

I was bored one day so I looked in the pantry and found a box of cake mix and used the real instructions to write it

Revision ends with death.

This is rather creative. Now I can bake a cake without looking at the directions. :)
