A World Of Cravings

When you have a desire for something, You have an intense craving that just won’t quit. For some people it’s called a Nicotine Fit. Desperate people will check the ashtrays Before they ask… Can I get a cigarette? They crave and enjoy the pleasure, that first satisfying drag. Moving their arm in that wonderful back & forth motion. Those of you who crave, already know it’s no joke, You want that morning fix. Most of you know what I mean… You’re addicted and need that daily cup of caffeine. We all play the game, It’s a cup of Coffee by another name. Java has that smooth taste You don’t want to waste, to start your day, You desire and enjoy that first satisfying sip, keeping you in stride, And some bring cigarettes along for the ride. As Java goes down your throat. Some grab the car keys and others grab the TV remote. Now, one of the sweeter things in life, Like when a man takes a wife. A craving that has both Men and women going out of their way. For something chocolate to make their day. Some say it taste like sex, And if it does, then I’ve been eating the wrong chocolate. Now on their exciting European honeymoon, Traveling by Train. 33 countries one rail pass. Something they both crave, To see each other, As they see the world. And then there are cravings that ladies have had, it’s not that bad. They delightfully suffer when life is about to make them a mother. When a little one is on their way. Being pregnant comes with a wish for a short and painless delivery day. But before that day, Cravings are cravings, Like liver and onions with cheese and red grapes. Like Crab legs you can’t seem to get enough of. Like Apple sauce with ketchup, Cucumbers with Pepper and vinegar. Like Argo cornstarch Strait out of the box with a spoon. Like Green grapes and Nectarines. Tacos and nachos, need I say more, People have cravings of all kinds… What’s yours?
