There’s something different

in the chocolate wafer i enjoy

with my cup of tea

Just beyond the layer of chocolate

its like a host of bees have been playing

creating perfect hexagons in the wafers

Not too sticky, and not too sweet

smell passing the nose

wafts of honey with each individual chomp

Tempting

You’ve tried all year to keep that seaside bod

but now from festive cheer

the toned physique you flaunted at summer

is attacked with wine and beer

there’s every kind of cake and pudding

inside that cupboard of yours

and biscuits, cake and gingerbread men

to bite and chomp and gnaw

The Christmas feasts – Ginormous

with three kinds of festive meats

five kinds of seasonal vegetable

and other kinds of treat

So when christmas dinner is over

and you’ve had your festive fun

it’ll be time to take a walk in the park

or perhaps – go for a run ?

Trick or Treat ?

Jackolanterns (art by inky)

No lanterns coming to the front porch

No ghosts floating past the door

No Vampires not worrying ’bout their canines

No Werewolves coming to explore

The street is surprisingly quiet

the children all indoors

as parents keep them from bugs in the air

and other nasty spores

But there’s bobbing apples a plenty

and games in the family house

and treats and the telly, filling their bellies

till they all have to be quiet as a mouse

Rolling on in

Salford, Monday 4th May

It’s early morning, as i rise

and the street is busy to my surprise

for waking up the chorus (Dawn)

a pussy cat, a little forlorn

He’d spent his time, with his pals last night

playing around under the street lights

but now Ra is up, it has to be said

this furry old cat wants in for his bed

His stomach is full, thanks to a friend on the street

corned beef from a can – a most tasty treat

but his thoughts turned to breakfast, as on street he did play

so off to the garden , he began to make way

And up is his owner, so he’s through the back door

and slowly he goes off to his bed on the floor

so while humans are out, with meetings they keep

our furry old pussycat, is in bed, sound asleep

Indulge

#fowc #indulge

Fudge!

The stall it caught you unawares

and for a while all you did was stare

at the sweet and flavourful things on display

you bought a bag, and made your way

your favourite things held in a bag

like some sweet toothed burglars swag

coconut, cherry, vanilla and cream

all sat in a bag – your sweet tooth’s dream

but now you find its gone half past six

and you find yourself in an almighty fix

for the sweet stuff can wait – to a degree

as dad has made sausages for tea

so you wait for a while – and enjoy your tea

whilst the cubes of sweetness wait with glee

till your taste buds start to jump and stomp

and on pieces of fudge – you do chomp

In other words – Footprints on the beach

in response to https://patriciasplace.me/2019/07/17/in-other-words-the-beach/

beach sea seashell

three sets of feet – Walking on the Sand

Rendezvous with candy floss

Sweet stuff acquired – but only two pairs of feet

Smaller pair of toes, treated by Big Feet

To a Piggyback

Pancakes

#ShroveTuesday #Pancakes #Food #Acrostic #Lent #Christian

Stack of Pancakes, traditionally served up on Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash wednesday, the start of the Christian Lenten season of Abstinence and Fasting before Easter

Perhaps, it’s

Apt, that a

Number of these batter-based treats are

Created on Shrove Tuesday, For on the day after

Adults of a certain faith, may ask their

Kids to forgo the

Enjoyment of their favourite chocolate bars till the evening of

Saturday before Easter sunday, when the Easter bunny has hopped by

Bag O’Sweets

#food #sweets #confectionary

Photo by Ylanite Koppens on Pexels.com

Open up your bag and round

a quarter of sweets for half a pound

a drumstick lolly that’s hard to beat

lemon drops for a special treat

chocolate footballs and fizzy drops

the magic candy that fizzes and pops

cola bottles and sherbet tubes

candied shrimps and pineapple cubes

Now , don’t eat them all now,

they’re a treat, we agree

but eat them all and you wont eat

the fish and chips for your tea!

The Biscuit Tin-Soldier

Salford 12th June 2018

Sits on the window – awaiting his next

Order – arrival of supplies, a

Little late, but

Destination is assured

In time – he’ll receive the goods and keep them safe from

Eager little hands, – the precious cargo will be

Right where they cant see it
