you're reading...


Chocolate, hot and creamy,
making you feel dreamy,
distilling, quietly reeling
from that naughty chocolate feeling.
Warm and feeling tender.
Could chocolate have a gender?
A tomboy alley cat,
or the girl who’s loving Tindle,
supremely sensuous with subtle innuendo.
Falling into chocolate must be like a teenager’s first kiss,
luring you into tenderness.
Soft and rather flaky,
a heart that’s beating quickly.
Eating chocolate cake might make you feel
like doing somersaults and cartwheels
to the Chocolate song Butlins gave
But now and forever chocolate shall be
a trip into temptation and ecstasy
