Treasure Island

Charles M. Moore

(1953 june / Glasgow Scotland.)


Chocolate is funny
chocolate is fun
you can spread it on your body
you can lick it with your tongue
you can chew it, you can drink it
you can have it in the bath
chocolate is funny
it always makes me laugh

Chocolate is funny
chocolate is good
you can have it for your breakfast
as a substitute for food
it can be orgasmic
it can bring you paradise
you can lie in bed and dream of it
chocolate is nice.

    Adrienne has given a couple of good reasons to eat chocolate. I knew about the second one but wasn't aware it was actually good for the teeth! All the more reason to enjoy a bar of my favourite (begins with C) . Liked the poem, Charlie.

    * In Aztec times, chocolate (coca) was a highly valued drink.
    * Also, chocolate is good for the teeth; it actually wards away the enzymes that cause tooth decay.
    * And, chocolate contains an amino acid that produces chemicals inside the body that emulate feelings of being in love.

    Licking my lips~A delightful Poem Charles

    I don't know, Charles - chocolate is a mighty serious subject to this woman.
    ;) Have to say, too, that I've got a chocolate-scented body wash and may have to throw it out 'cause I'm gnawing on my arm every morning now... teeth marks, you know... too many questions... Love this poem much! ! ! (Report) Reply

    As much fun as actually eating chocolate - a hopping, singing poem!

    Chocolate is also comfort food. Good to have around when you're having a bad day. How about chocolate ice cream? ! One of my favorites. Neat poem.....

    I have never thought of chocolate as being funny. However, this is a nice fun poem. Good rhyming.
