Most people enjoy chocolate
With centres soft and sweet
While some prefer the ones with nuts
They’re much harder to eat.
Some bars have biscuit tucked inside
Others have crispy rice
As long as they have chocolate on
They’re all equally nice.
Some sweets are flavoured with spearmint
And some are made of fruit
Like jelly babies, just as well
They’re nude and not hirsute!
You can have chews or lollipops
Liquorice or toffee.
Do crisps and twiglets count as sweets?
I want some for my tea!
Next time you’re in a sweetshop
Take a good look around.
You’ll see that these days you can’t get
Much chocolate for a £1.
