Cotton Candy and Clouds


Airplane please fly through,
The pink and fluffy, fluffy blue.
Oh, I can taste the savory stuff.
You're flying through a floating puff.

They're too good, these clouds I know.
The pink and blue in sunshine show,
That this sky candy, I must eat.
It's taste no other food can beat.

I wanted to lean out of the plane,
Eat cotton candy outside my window pane.
Now I suddenly saw that the pink and blue,
Were clouds and not candy too.

But now the plane landed,
And I ran to the counter,
Of the airport candy shop,
And gorged on the cloudy looking,
Blue and pink candy.

I love,
Cotton candy and clouds.

    Hmmm, a binger of sorts, of candy puffed up and blue.

am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
