Epulaeryu

The Epulaeryu poem was invented by Joseph S. Spence, Sr., based on years of research. The name was selected while touring the Mediterranean, Asia, and America, and enjoying a variety of succulent and nourishing cuisines and drinks of flavor with an international taste.
Joseph used to play on AP as spencej, and a  Double Reverse Epulaeryu of his is here:
The Epulaeryu poem is:
A poem of 7 lines
It is syllabic              : 7/5/7/5/5/3/1
it is unrhymed
it is unmetered
It is about delicious cuisine and drinks from the culinary arts.
The final one-syllable word must ends with and exclamation point.
 The form is 7/5/7/5/5/3/1. Each line has one thought relating to the main cuisine. Therefore, this new poetic form, the Epulaeryu, which has corresponding lines built around the main dish and drinks, ends with an exclamation point, and concludes with the writer’s excitement and feelings about such a specially flavored cuisine.
Here is my attempt.
Pineapple-Upside-Down-Cake (Epulaeryu)
Pineapple-upside-down-cake.
with cherries or not,
juice, not water, then you bake.
What a treat you’ve got!
Tip it up then eat
a yummy
treat!
