My Gummy Bears Are In Love
”Hey”, she said, ”do you want some gummy bears?”
And without looking I reached into the package.
As I looked into my hand,
I saw that two were sticking together.
Although I’ve never seen them kiss,
I wouldn’t have been as cruel as to separate these two.
I put them on a table and whenever I felt lonely,
I would look at them.
And then I left them there
but one day the craving became unbearable.
So I tore them apart
and in a moment of weakness, I ate one.
“Hey”, [the lonely gummy bear says]“see, I told you to go sushi
But it is a temple! To us, Michael!”
