Chocolate Covered Cherries

Chocolate Covered Cherries

By Ami (Gypsie) Offenbacher-Ferris

In response to Bartholomew Barkers prompt Chocolate Covered Cherries

I do not like cherries!
Said I, said I
He popped one in his mouth
Looking at me with crystal
blue eyes, blue eyes
I do so love chocolate
I do, I do
And cherry juice is very yummy
Watching the liquid paint his lips
Said I, said I
A big hand passes one half a nugget
To me, to me
Cherry juice dripping all over
He laughs as I lick it from
my knee, my knee
The box was soon empty
We saw, we saw
Time we headed home he said
his red stained t-shirt wipes
my mouth, my mouth
George Benjamin Franklin!
Said she, said she
What have the two of you
been up to this day?
This day, this day.
Stopped by the store he said
To her, to her
Chocolate covered cherries on sale
Got two boxes to eat and to share
Empty hands, Empty hands
Did you spoil girls dinner as well?
Said she, said she
Now wife you are wise and kind
I would never spoil this girl
Of mine, of mine
Mother fluffed and puffed my best
Sunday dress, Sunday dress
Not a single red stain nor a mess
on my dress did she find
She find, she find
Lucky you she said to Father
To Father, to Father
Her dress looks brand new
Lucky for me I do not like cherries
Said I, said I
