Goo Sweets

They’re hiding in the cellophane
jostling for position
the icky-sticky
Haribo edition

Or bouncing round in cartons
from pick ‘n mix ‘em shops
it’s not the same
what became
of good old fashioned Lemon Drops?

I do not want to see them
or hear them being chewed
a mastication
that should be eschewed

Most of all…I fear them
especially the egg
a goo-sweet from
which I retreat
please put them back I beg

But naughtily you giggle
and smack your lips with glee
chew some more and…
thank me for
this terrible confectionary
