Holiday Chocolate


Chocolate- I am smitten
You are there for me
When no one cares
Or no one dares

You fill up my life
With ice cream, pie and cake
I'd even have you on vegetables
Tis' love for goodness sake

You taste soo good in candy
And great in truffles too
I love to munch and chew away
Happy hands coated in goo

Your sugar can make me crazy
I end up very wired
Flying around the house
A rocket: chocolate fired

My taste buds and my stomach
Don't share a similar view
While taste is running delightful
The other is in a stew

At first a big round bloat
And then sick to the gills
From whence my wife will surely say
'Take your stomach pills'

Perhaps a wiser chap than I
Would go gently to a treat
For the coming holiday season
I'll be in it with both feet

    Amen to jumping in it with both feet! I hate to admit.............I will sit there and eat chocolate till I feel dizzy when I get a real craving! I know I should stop but I LOVE anything that is chocolate. I always say, I'd probably eat a cowpie if they dipped it in chocolate! (OK, I wouldn't REALLY but, I may pick of the chocolate!) j/k :) Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
