Little Boys And Jelly Beans (Children) - Poem by C.J. Heck

I love jelly beans,
all but the black ones, they’re yucky.

Red ones trade best.
Orange is good.
Green tastes even better!
(all but the black ones, they’re yucky) .

White is like vanilla.
Sissy likes the white.
Purples bite, but I still like,
all but the black ones, they’re yucky.

I like pink, but it’s for girls.
Yellow is my favorite.
I love jelly beans,
all but the black ones, they’re yucky.

    CJ,

    What a clever poem. Kids are so innocent and can joy in the most simple things.
    Don't know if I got your intent, but do reds ones trade best or taste best? I know they taste best but we know kids like to trade them also.
