                                                   Chocolate Sonnet
                                You always said you’d sooner chew nettles
                                than touch anything branded by Nestl´ ,

                                that a hand-grenade of barbed calories
                                nestled within each bite of Cadbury’s,

                                so bring on the celery. And a slice
                                of cake was suicide, and sugar mice

                                were a tensed trap, and truffles could be wrapped
                                any which way, were still turf slightly warped.

                                Eat junk? You might as well rummage through bins,
                                barefaced as a Buddhist monk. Enough buns

                                and you’ll look like you’ve one in the oven.
                                Teacakes were taboo. I wasn’t even

                                allowed to bring up the subject of Lindt.
                                All of which left just me. You gave that up for Lent.
