Poetry Friday Word: CANDY!

#1
ode to candy
craving the crunch
tantalizing taste
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?!
#2
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...
STOP!
Divine Intervention came one day...
Diabetes!
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!

Let's just keep reading and writing candy poems. It's fun and chewy and so non-fatting! Thanks for the comment signed in rhyme.

Oh the Candy Store! Penny candy, maybe 5 cents for the big Chocolate bars, the chewy and the melty...I think I need to make a candy run!

When I was Chefin' and would cut myself a big ol' slab of somethin' sweet the guys would beg me not to eat in because they knew that as soon as I came down off the sugar high I would be 'bitchin' like a Mo'Fo'"

I miss having a candy store. I'd like to open one one day - as long as I didn't have to tend it all day every day. But man, candy stores with rows of jars of enticing colors...

I love sweets too much, but they leave me feeling ill afterwards (of course what should I expect if I eat a pound of chocolate ;)

Not much good for my waistline either.

I like anything, so long as it's choclate :) That sugar craving is a hard one to beat, once it digs in. Have you found any safe substitutes?

Colleen:So true! You're welcome! (I can't resist a time to rhyme!

Old Lady: I'm dazzled too and the no sugar stuff never quite cuts it!


Mona:Okay, but take more than 5 cents with you!

Steve: But you needed to build up fat for your Santa look!

Maggie: Yes, I'd be dipping into the profits too!

Richard: I wouldn't have taken you for a sweets freak and you probably have no waistline to worry much about!

Pauline: Yes, it sure has a good grip! Nothing is like the real thing. "Sugar-free" still raise blood sugar and they still have a lot of fat! I can't win! If you eat to much sugar-free, it acts as a laxative, just for an added bonus!

So, chips 'n' candy? Got you from the sweet and savoury sides! I'm mostly a savoury snack person - can eat a pound of 'bombay mix' in an evening - that's a heck of a lot! But candy? Christmas and Easter - I'm hogging all the chocs! The rest of the year I'm mostly on the crisps and peanuts... but give me a box of nutty chocs, and that's me for the evening!

Great fun, this one ... though I feel sorry for anyone with diabetes... I know some children that are given huge bags of sweets every day... I can just see them in 10 and 20 years time! :-(

Yeah, can never decide which I want most. Probably sweet! I'd rather be like you, though. All you have to watch is fat and carb. Sweets have all the bad stuff! Woe is me!

Candy, while good once in awhile, does not satisfy my cravings. I'm a salt freak - pretzels and a can of Coke are the perfect snack for me. But there is something about a sweet bit of candy. Love your poems!

Brooksba: You have been blessed by not having a real sweet tooth! I hate that I have one...not a great combo, that and diabetes!

Diana: Praise The Chocoholics!

Richard: Just wait till you're over 50! Ah, you probably won't have one even then! (My husband doesn't have a scrap of fat on him and he's 53! But then, he doesn't eat anything sweet or fat except natural peanut butter! it's disgusting.)

Mystic Rose: Thanks for the visit! Fun verse and fun eating it! If only we could make it last longer!

Tell your hubby to live a little :-D

All that exercise, and not eating fat or sugar - outrageous. Even i succumb to the choccies once in a while (like now - got two big tins for christmas on a 'bogof' offer, and I can't stop delving in! :-S )
