If The World Were Made Of Sweets

Jellyfish cookies
Soften in seas of melting
Milkiest of creams,
As splendid drops of honey
Coat frosted cupcake islands.

Zayn Splits From 1D

No more
Riffs o’er. 

Half time
No mime. 

Will stand
Sound grand. 

Without 
The tout. 

Zayn’s cool 
We rule.

Aquarium

The zoo
Is so crowded
Aquarium I choose
That is so nice

Fine, then.
My kids love it.
Fish are lovely creatures
We will have fun.
