1745 – Candy Corn Debate

Candy Corn Debate
This is how politics seem to me most of the time.

Candy Corn Debate

Some people praise, some offer scorn
when we’re discussing candy corn.
Some hate, and state they’ve had enough,
but as for me, I love the stuff.

I eat the layers one by one,
to make them last, to make it fun:
the yellow part, an orange bite,
then teeny tiny tips of white.

Behind my lips, bedside my teeth
two kernels peek from underneath.
They make me look like Dracula:
that is to say, “SPECTACULA!”

So as you sort each trick or treat,
don’t toss the corn, for I can eat
a million, billion, trillion packs
of autumn-colored sugared wax.
