Candy Store

June 19, 2008
Astonishingly glued in the heaven of a store, contentment, and jubilation embrace you as you stroll through its door.
Candy produces a smile, takes away that concern.
Each wrapper holds a sugary treasure, causing my stomach to turn.
Waiting the day, when a person such as me, longs for a sweet tooth, or a sinful, delectable treat.
So much joy, but only a dollar to spend,
Each wrapper stares envious at one another, hoping their chosen to be my next sugar coated friend.
Let’s see…Hershey’s, Butterfinger, Crunch, Twix?
M and M’s, Kit-Kat, Reeses, Pixie Stix?
Milky Way, Milk Duds, Sour patch kids, Whoppers?
Jelly Bellys, 3 Musketeers, Smarties or Gobstoppers?
Sweet Tarts, Tootsie Rolls, Runts or a Ring Pop?
I see Baby Ruths, Almond Joy, Mr. Goodbar and a Payday at the shelf’s top!
Laffy Taffy, Jujy Fruit, Goobers… what’s the difference?
Between gummy bears or gummy worms? Don’t they have the same content?
Starburst, Nerds, Jolly Ranchers, Twizzlers that hit the floor.
Skittles, Krackel, Junior Mints, through this candy wonderland I explore.
100 Grand, Gummy or plain life savors, Carmel, lollipops, my decision time has come.
You know what? Forget candy… I’ll just buy a pack of gum!
