Dark Chocolate

I'm going to be away for a while - recharge the batteries (using only solar energy).
I'll leave you with a little something to suck on...



Dip in dear readers, dip into this box
Of very expensive and decadent chocs
Our overfilled soft centres won’t put up a fight
You’ll love our foreign policy; our Turkish delight
Barrels of Rum for banana republics
Walnut whip crack for Falluja’s refuseniks
Caramel encased security measures
Nut-cased dictators plundering national treasures
Partake in the madness of a truffle berserker
Or a Strawberry surprise in a Taliban burka
Palestine Pralines for your Bar Mitzvah treats
Our Fair-trade coffee cups are clear conscience sweets
Colombian gun-runner, CIA lemon drop duster
Baghdad bomber, casbah nut cluster
Cadbury’s heroes in desert camouflage
Nestle double thick with Halliburton mirage
Atom bomb burgundy vanilla surprise
Sweet sugar plum and history’s demise
Chocolate orange agent of evolutionary change
DNA bubbles genetic biscuit range
And when the box is half empty we’ll fill it once more
With Black magic and milktray to cover the gore
Of dead children in the Congo, Lebanon and Dafur
Of a whimpering world that can’t take anymore
Don’t worry dear readers about expanding waistline
The future is here – it’s a bitter deadline.

Wherever you venture..however you charge..may your world treat you with finesse and favoritism..always and in all-ways.

Catch ya when you re-appear aka the flip side.

That’s sweet no praline pun intended!

Neocons have baked their Niger “yellow cake”
Making DC delicacies with niggers’ cocoa hides
And with kosher bullets, yielding news that are fake
Crushing Ayrab kids, while East with West collides

Alas..this is a few days late but for whichever holiday/s you & yours celebrate in December; here's wishing you blessings when they are needed, the company of loved ones & worthyfriends, health to live well by, delicious scrumptious eats, much shared laughter and a few private ones, a gift you really, really dig and spiritual fulfillment each and every day.

The chocs were simply divine I tell you!

Merci for sharing.
