Located In Kenya!

It appears that The Map Guys have found a place for Ria's Chocolate Cake Farm.

So while they are making their plans, hopefully enjoying some non-native chocolate cake until their crops are ready, I will contribute a poem:

Kenya, Home of the Chocolate Cake Farm

Kenya, the home of the Chocolate Cake Farm -
May this dear country come never to harm!

For here we can grow in the warmth of the sun
The sugar and chocolate makes cakes such fun.

We grow on a fertile plain wheat for our bread,
Finely ground for our cake as the cake-cookbook said;

And nearby in a jungle grow orchids so sweet
Which give us vanilla for the cakes that we eat.

In a barn on our farm we have cows for their milk
We churn some for butter, far smoother than silk.

We also keep chickens for eggs that they lay
Their rooster awakens us, crowing each day.

The soda for baking we get from the ground
The salt at the seashore is easily found.

Our house has our oven, our sink and our table,
And all the utensils which baking enable.

So armed with our recipe, we blend mix and bake
But there's still one thing missing - so what's our mistake?

Our chocolate cake's ready, so large and so sweet -
Let's call some friends over - C'mon gang, let's eat!

Kenya, the home of the Chocolate Cake Farm -
May this dear country come never to harm!

Although I don't like chocolate, I think the poem is sweet!
