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.
