A single sweet could do no harm?
Said Nancy’s mum unsurely,
Unconsciously, she made this choice
A tad bit prematurely.
Hence Nancy grabbed the sugared thing
So sprightly and obscenely pink,
Under the sweet confection’s spell
She dove into the kitchen sink.
I do quite like this hot tub, Mum!
It lathers up quite nice!
They have some great food service too
There’s floating beans and rice!
Then Nancy cartwheeled out the sink
(Sopping, flecked with beans and all)
She galloped past the neighbor’s door
And barged into the hall.
Hello, Ms. Andrews! Howdy do?
Your warts do make me stare,
My father has some pimple cream
I’m sure he’d love to share!
Then Nancy turned more somersaults
Into a field of flowers pink
And at each drooping, sullen stalk
Nancy began to wink.
Hello there handsome! Howdy do?
Ain’t seen a plant as suave as you!
These fibrous roots be so exquisite
Promise me you’ll come and visit?
But Nancy’s mum came marching past!
Young missy, I’ve just had enough!
As for those nasty pinky sweets,
You’ll never get to have the stuff!
And now resentful of all candy
Her mum became a bitter cynic —
To avenge her daughter’s sugar spree,
She started a dental clinic.
