Oh great and beloved king,
Let me find you waiting,
On the candy aisle,
You are,
Blue,
Pink,
Green,
Purple,
The hippy movement in my mouth.

So jolly,
So cowboy worthy,
You are a rectangle and I love you.

You taste so tangy,
So slight, and sweet,
Watermelon,
Raspberry,
Apple,
And Wonka would be jealous, Grape.

Cornucopia of delicious fruit, be mine,
The crinkly wrapper is psychedelic groovy,
Feet moving,
Face smiling,
Dancing,
Twirling,
Jolly Rancher indeed.

I was enjoying a Jolly Rancher while sitting backstage in my costume for the play "Pride and Prejudice." I decided to write while I waited for my time on stage.
