A VISIT TO CANDY LAND

A VISIT TO CANDY LAND

 

If you’ve never been to Candyland

Then surely you must go

The trees are hung with lollipops

And there’s cotton candy snow


The Gummi Bears sit in lifesavers

That float on a blueberry flavored lake

The Gummi Worms play peek-a-boo

As soon as they awake


The houses are made of gingerbread

With marshmallow and chocolate tops

You’ll peek through brittle windows

Trimmed with tasty lemon drops


You can run down streets of candy bars

With sweet peppermint stick lights

Or ride a silver kiss see-saw

Tossing gumballs with all your might


Oh please come visit candy land

There are many things to eat

From Butterscotch to licorice whips

I’m sure you’ll find a treat

Thank you. Know many diabetics, some in my family. It's rough for many of them to give up what they like so much. It just seems that there is more diabetes since we use so much more processed food. My family history is farmers and they still have carried that love of fresh food from generation to generation. I use to be a soft drink idiot but I gave that up a while ago when I found I couldn't stop drinling colas.

Thank you. how are you enjoying the new look of our site.

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
