Salute to Chocolate



Terry’s, Cadbury, Suchard, Lindt and Rowntree
Devout disciples of the mysterious chocolate god
Expensive? Yes – all the best in life is never free
Chocolate: heavenly luxury from a really ugly pod


Even Hershey from that far off, once colonial shore

Tastes, to me, like a thousand things in one
Sweet, smooth, meltingly soft, all at once, never a bore
A thousand times better than a cup of tea with scone


Fry’s, Mars, another two. How many know the secret?
Do they alone know the black art of the chocolatier?
Are there others yet untasted? Let me in, don’t keep it
I’m going to get some now. I love chocolate, I’m sure its clear

knowing you, it must have been difficult for you to admit that even american chocolate tastes diabolically good.

(needless to say that hershey's does not taste good because of its origin, but simply because it is chocolate) :D

Hi Oliviero, nice of you to drop by and read some of my blog posts. I must admit I've never even tasted a Hershey bar. I needed it for the poem, that's all.
