Are You Going to Eat That?

In honour of Chocolate Covered ANYTHING Day...
A poem:

It makes better the bitter and sweetens the sweet.
Improves all the muffins, e’en good on the meats,
I’ve put it on ice cream and pastries and nuts,
On caramel’s delicious. No ifs, ands, or buts.
In cookies and candies and pie (a la mode),
It’s one with the cereals, served by boatload,
I’ve had it on turkey and pheasant and goose,
On pot roast and venison, pork chops and moose,
And if there’s a campfire nearby to be had,
I’ll tell you right now that those s’mores ain’t that bad!
On bread, it’s delicious, on fruit, even more,
Don’t forget to stock up when you visit the store,
In fact, there is nothing that won’t better be,
Just pour it on thick and for sure you will see,
Why, I’ve had some things considered quite icky,
And this from a person who’s not at all picky,
Like ants and grasshoppers, a cricket or two,
And a couple of worms, to mention a few,
Thickly coated, they failed to make even a dent,
And eating would not be construed ‘an event’.
They slid down quite nice, without much of a mess,
In a chocolatey coating of pure tastiness,
Yep, chocolate and anything, dip and repeat,
Heck, give me a hubcap, I’ll coat it and eat!

Each month we write poetry, based on a theme,
Karen and all of us make quite the team,
So if you enjoyed all that you read right here,
Go peruse the rest of the other Shakespeares!

  1. You had me right up to the bugs . . .
    And you're gonna post video of that hubcap thing, right?

  2. Hubcaps are a bit far. But bugs? Not bad, not bad at all.

    1. I don't think I even chewed. Just let them slide down in their coating of deliciousness...

  6. I like chocolate quite a lot, but I draw the line at adding it to meats. In fact there's a lot of foods I prefer without chocolate.
