A Happy Tongue - Poem by Leaking Pen
I ate with my stomach's eyes
What my brain whished it could taste
Colours and shapes locked behind a glass display
Valleys and peaks, man made hills and sweet fields.
Surfaces as smooth as silk
Other like white foam from an ocean
Some with confetti spread on top
Garnishing their shimmering heads
Brought happy smiles on my face
And to all you young and old alike!
Centipede fingers in human hands disguises
Handling treasures carved from snow and ice
Tempting my every willing tongue
To too many a heavenly delight
Gladly stripping my wallet from
Its Washingtons and Liberty Bells.
One flavour that drew me in like a magnet
Is pitch black as a moonless night,
But I knew in my heart of hearts
What this sweet taste of chocolate could be.
I ordered three scoops piled inside a cone
Dripping with smooth silk on its sides
Like smiling foam inside a coffee mug
I embraced sin and gluttony whole-heartedly
My smiling tongue seesawing back and forth
And add happily another kilo to my belly's ring
Three extra large chocolate scoops inside a biscuit cone
Jump-start my winter's heart back to joviality
And centre my unstable gravity.
One thing we all agree to agree on
No matter what creed you and I believe in
That heaven is made from
These magic swirls on display inside precious tubs
Make souls with galloping hearts rejoice!
