A brown-eyed boy in Louisiana…
Laying on the blacktop outside the elementary school
Tootsie roll pop (Grape) in one hand –
Chalk in the other.
Slurp… Tally…
Slurp, Slurp, Slurp
Tally, Tally, Tally
Lance licked the lusciousness
His tongue turning purple
His palms sweating
His mind filled with numbers

It takes an estimated 2,893 licks to get to the center of a tootsie pop.

Slurp, Tally
Slurp, Slurp, Tally
The clouds roll in---

Louisiana is the wettest state in the U.S, which received an annual rainfall of 56 inches

The rain comes pouring, pouring, pouring…
How many licks??
The world may never know
