Pocket Money Day

Nose pressed flat upto the glass, Pockets tinkling full of brass; Oblong jars,row on row Candy -filled,to over flow. Mintoes,chews and Pontefract cakes, Limes and milk chocolate flakes; Jelly beans and sweet love-hearts, A few of each ,just to start. Toffee whirls and butterscotch, Long liquorice laces,all top-notch; Aniseed balls,French bonbons, Available now without coupons. Sugared almonds and white mice, Vanilla fudge,a penny a slice! Just for starters a chocolate ice, As it's going at half-price. Barley sugar and a sherbert straw, The shop bell tinkles as I close the door; Is that th time! I'll have to skate, Back into school,I can't be late.
