A melt down occurred high outside
That ended a fabulous ride
Let's love licorice
But recall Icarus
Whose fall was preceded by pride
Author's note: Licorice is dark and an allegory for the bad things one needs in life. We know that bad is stimulating, but too much of a good thing can have the opposite effect.
