POEM: Chocolate

Chocolate is my love — be it Trix or any other mix.

A chocolate bar I'd never miss,

I might even trade it for a kiss!

I would travel far and wide to get my "fix"!

What should I do? I love it so,

and the more I eat the more I grow,

But my boyfriend wants me "just so".

I guess I'll have to choose between the two.

Dear Lord, give me the will to give up chocolate,

because I want to keep my boyfriend.

I will love him to the end —

He is also my very best friend.
