Who loves chocolate, ah...come on admit, you love the dark, silky luscious stuff. So here's to you chocolate lovers


                   FOR THE LOVE OF CHOCOLATE
      I like jelly beans, I like gummie bears, I like lollipops too!
     Twix are chewy, and suckers can last all day.
     Mints are refreshing, but none of these will do…
     I've got to have my chocolate, that's all I have to say.
     There's nothing like a chocolate bar, to satisfy oneself
     The rich and creamy texture melts in your mouth like silk,
     As it slides down in your tummy, it sits upon a shelf,
     And waits for you to wash it down with a cold glass of milk.
     Chocolate gives you energy, at least that's what they say,
     But that's not why I eat it, each and every day.
     I eat it 'cause it tastes so good, and nothing else will do
     Now be honest, will you, and admit you love it too!
