Chocolate Limerick

Poets United prompts us to write about chocolate:

Chocolate Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear candy shop, leave out the filling.
Those rich, creamy innards ain’t thrilling.
I like choc’late that’s pure.
Milk or dark? Both allure.
Must I choose? Okay, dark gets top billing.

Update: Happy National Chocolate Day: October 28th!

    I’m with ya all the way on dark chocolate; 70% cocoa content is the best….and good for ya too :)

    Fun limerick, but wrong choice…at least for me …prefer milk. The wife favors dark also…a woman thing? Maybe we’ll find out here. Vb

    An unusual idea for a limerick. Thanks.

  4. I like my chocolate like I like my coffee–plain and dark–though the luxury of milk now and again is not a bad thing!

  5. I’m a chocoholic. Can’t get enough, even though now it gives me hot flashes. My favorite? Mochaccino, whipped cream, with chocolate shavings on top.

    I think I might need a cup of cocoa before turning in, ha ha ha. Loved this, Mad! Amy

    Chocolate is the one thing I adore
    but the calories are something to abhor
    the taste is really very sweet
    it’s the perfect after dinner treat
    which is why I always as for more

    I love chocolate, but must ration myself to occasionally; but sometimes eat a half-pound slap at a sitting, which disgusts my wife since she can keep one going for a week.
