BELGIAN WAFFLES

Each squared pattern has its own story to tell,
its usual symphony to orchestrate,
its unknown gospel to preach,
its shortcomings to revise

Spotted along the taalgrens within
its frontiers,
along its so called seething equator of the Waals
and the Vlaams, and the Oostkantons

With the Brabançonne, the obvious pathfinder
which symbolizes the eternal cradle
on which the nation is birthed

Like the flour that gives rise
to the waffle,
the Belgian waffle
let its appraisal be sung
for its lasting feat knows no limit.
