Somtimes, the pressures of life overwhelm us. Chocolate always helps.
I thought that I would buy myself a chocolate Easter Egg
And keep it till the light of Easter morn.
I kept it in the 'fridge but temptation drew me in
To taste it long before the Easter dawn.
Strong-minded and severe, I resisted everyday
Remembering the dark luscious flavour
Protected by a covering of shiny golden foil,
My mouth kept watering as I could savour
Such a treat waiting patiently for me till Easter Day,
A sign of new life but I lost the plot!
On Saturday, after a dreadful week, I grabbed the egg,
Tore off the golden foil and scoffed the lot.
