Sweet Forrest Gump


Forrest in his simplicity,
loved to munch;
not just any delicasy,
but loved chocolate.

No matter how many,
U.S. presidents he got to meet;
he always came back,
to eat his chocolate treat.

So why was he still thin,
no need to go on a fast;
indeed Forrest Gump is a star,
from start till the very last.
