Chocolate


I love the time of Easter
When my children get a chocolate treat
For when they've gone to bed at night
Into the kitchen I do creep

I thought I would just have a nibble
So small that they wouldn’t know
But the chocolate tasted so good
That I had to have a little more

At first I broke off a corner
Then turned it so they couldn’t see
But then I turned it round again
Well the box was shouting at me! !

I thought the kids, they wouldn't mind
After all I am their mum
I looked down at the empty box
Oh lord what have I done

So now I have a big problem
I need help for goodness sake
For I need to buy more chocolate
Before tomorrow my children awake

Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
