If Chocolate Were Extinct (AKA Ode to Chocolate–the best food ever)

If chocolate were extinct–

What would you do?

Drink more coffee?

Feel really blue?


I think I would

Go back to school–

Figure out a way

To remake this food!


Chocolate is my teacher,

Chocolate is my friend.

Always she’s with me

When I’m needing a mend.


Hello brain magic–

I’m feeling mighty fine

Because dark chocolate’s

Inside my mind!


Inside my heart,

She sings a sweet song…

Its melody, its lyrics

Bring me back home…


**I’ve been guilty of some quirky, random poetry before, and I think it’s happened again!  I had this funny line of thought tonight about “what if chocolate went extinct”?  What would I do??  I’d eat it all up until the last possible moment, of course!!  I just think chocolate is one of the best things ever, so life without it would be pretty drab.  I have no idea where such randomness comes from or why it chooses my head to show up in, but the effect was that I started really appreciating chocolate and all her amusing and grounding gifts in my life. If she were truly taking off from this plane, I’d be ever more grateful of all the fun adventures we’ve had together!  Since it’s (astrologically) a Pisces sun and moon right now, I guess it’s just a lyrical time!  Perfect for zany arrangements of words… And a spiritual appreciation for the things you love…  Thank you cacao…You’re a poem now!  **
