ode to candy
craving the crunch
hail to chocolate
and make haste
PMS or Menopause
not sure which
but that's the cause
impossible to satiate
oh, why does it all taste so great?!
my sugar fix fixed me!
daddy take me to the store
i'm out of candy - i want more!
the candy man's gone down our street
go chase him down for something sweet!
mo-jo's, blackballs, taffy, fudge
give me lots and I won't budge
eebie-jeebs and chocolate bars
kit-kat, coffee crisp and mars...
Divine Intervention came one day...
and I would pay!
my nemesis had come to pass
it overcame this wee young lass
I got sick, the candy stopped -
sugar in blood had finally dropped
and daily needles, sometimes five
have helped to keep this girl alive
thanks to Banting, a drug was handy -
but sad to say,
I STILL CRAVE CANDY!
Mother of Invention, the sweetest thing since Sponge Taffy!
