Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate
slides sensually
down throat.
Coating tonsils
soon to be removed,
velvety smooth
at soothing story time.
Milo, Horlicks
are just not
a substitute,
their thinly flavoured
taste wasted, poured
away. "There
goes Goldilocks!"
whispered mummy,
"Those honey bears
have been mugged.
She's glugged down
all the drinking
chocolate, eaten
the bic bics and
thirteen eclairs.
Couldn't get enough
of the goody stuff.
bellowed daddy bear
"It was her
over there
dancing into
the woods."

bic? no understand
 — crepaway

not sure of the hidden philosophy and emotions here, but I like poetry that starts out in one solar system and ends up in another.

What about the tonsils here?  You're about to be unable to speak...

Dear Crepaway

Bic bic is a term of descriptive endearment used by mothers among the starving working classes of northern England during the industrial revolution to describe a biscuit,usually procured cheap because they were broken,and given sparingly to young children ,some as young as three who worked 20 hour shifts 7 days a week in cotton mills, to keep their strength up. My favourite was short bread and it probably accounts for the fact that i am only 4foot 3 high and suffer from ricketts.

I don't believe in England
 — crepaway

Dear Crepaway

Neither do i,it's only a place to live and if you get involved in all the shit in this fictitious country it messes with your head. After all what are countries but to be controlled and exploited with the people subjugated to the power of oppressors who control or attempt to control by subverting spiritual well being.
