One Of Life's Puzzles



Don't know why T'wasn't thought of before When I realized it I was totally floored I'm sure you must know What I'm referring to Not the meaning of life Or why oceans are blue Put on your cap I'll give you a clue To do with some caramel It's making me drool It's made by Cadbury's Called a Caramilk bar I'm sure you've had one The yummiest by far Don't know their secret Like magic methinks Some spying if I try Could land in the clink Guess it's a puzzle We'll take to our grave Come back with the answer Coz ghosts misbehave They can spy on things Without being seen Then the secret will out That'll be kinda keen Then old Mother Earth Will no longer ponder We'll all catch our breath At last know the answer © Jack Ellison 2013

    This is another tremendous and wondrous write my friend! I truly loved reading this glorious poem this evening! What a stupendous piece, I love this enormous, harmonious verse! Notice all the "...ous" words? I thought I'd give you a special comment here my friend, I mean every line too, not just trying to get an "...ous"! Great Work!!

    A little bit of larceny in my soul! They had a TV commercial a while back with this theme! LOL

    Jack; This is really good. Caramel - I have eaten, but caramilk bar - I never have. Maybe it is only sold in Canada. It is making my mouth water. Thanks for your comment on ( My New Life ) God bless you always...... Lucilla

    I've never tried one... with our limited income I RUN past the candy isle... Imagine if Dragon had one... That big mouth of his would bankrupt us... Uh! Hi Dragon!... Forgot you were there... Uh!... Yes you can have one... when you get your first UPS pay check... and can afford it... Just remember to hold your breathe while in the store... Fire and chocolate don't mix... except for with hot chocolate... LOL... Yes, your right... You have a sweet little mouth... Not!... Gotta run!... LOL

    Sometimes, it's better not to question the simple pleasures of life. Especially candy....just taste & absorb its goodness. :) Nicely done!
