Dear Christo - Not too keen! How about a nice bunch of daffodils
OR a bar of CHOCOLATE!
I am looking at a cupboard, a cupboard over there,
Shut and firmly closed, but I am well aware
Three steps will take me to it and if I open up the door,
A bar of milky chocolate will fall out and hit the floor!
Shall I stay here looking, pretending not to care
About the milky chocolate, on a shelf in there?
That I don’t want to taste it, the silkiness of cream,
Or feel it in my mouth, (a regular routine!)
I have no wish to smell it as the wrapper is ripped off,
That I can walk away with a nonchalant little cough.
Not a chance in heaven, I’m up and out of chair,
Two steps are all it takes to get me over there!
Two big steps will be enough, not three as I first thought,
Sure enough, it starts to fall, but very deftly caught.
Torn apart and eaten, not a moment more to wait,
Pure greed and self-indulgence (can anyone relate?)
I am looking at a cupboard, a cupboard over there
Once held a bar of chocolate but sadly, now completely bare!
