Christmas fruit cake poem?
 Login/Join
 
posted
I heard Ray read a poem on the radio several years ago about a Christmas fruit cake. It was about how the fruit cake came over to America with Columbus and has been being passed from person-to-person ever since.

I think the poem was called 'It Came To Pass and Not To Stay', though I could not find it at my library.

Is this poem published anywhere?

Many fruitcake jokes can be found here: https://grubamericana.com/2012...y-tradition-or-joke/

The only It Came to Pass, Not to Stay reference I could find was by Buckminster Fuller.
