Swedish Fish

Written by: ilene bauer

Soft and chewy, cute and red;
They won’t wedge in your teeth.
You can chew them and not fear
They’ll get stuck underneath.

Jelly beans and licorice
And taffy tend to stick.
Jujyfruits wreak havoc
So they’re not the sweets to pick.

But Swedish fish and gummy bears
Are perfect for a chew.
If you need a sugar rush,
Well, either one will do.

Chocolate has its special place
But sometimes you just need
A candy where the chewy factor’s
Surely guaranteed.

Hopefully in Sweden
People eat and get their wish:
A perfect ending to a meal – 
A plate of Swedish fish!
