When Candy Canes Crack - Poem by derrick foster

sharp and abrupt
suddenly snapped
red, white, crumbly
fragile yet slack
many pieces in a pack
once whole, now broken
nearly powder.
the mystery is how.
when last seen
were complete
laid flat
in its pack
without a single wack
gingerly placed
to preserve for later
once again seen
in pieces uneven.
left to wonder
who? when? how?
candy canes crack!
