Impatiently Baking Bread

Impatiently Baking Bread

17 seconds that make me wait instead
of pulling out the freshly baking bread
that looks as ready as when the timer beeps
but someone long before me insists that it keeps
on baking until the timer finally beeps
and leaves me with a 40 minute loaf of bread
I wish was 39, 43 instead.
