‘Twixt pinafores and semaphores

And petit fours and such

There’s often some confusion,

But I wouldn’t worry much


For here’s a way to keep them

All quite tidy in your mind

And if you’ll just recite this verse

No problems you will find


A pinafore’s an apron

And a semaphore’s a sign

A petit four’s a pastry

Of much intricate design


So when you’re finished baking treats

Aboard your trusty boat

You run your apron up the mast

To signal all afloat


Then the pinafore’s a semaphore

The petit fours are here

Which makes this rhyme a poor attempt

At metaphor I fear
