Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

I Scream, You Scream

The temperature’s rising
You’re getting so hot
Relief from this fever
Would sure hit the spot

Something delicious
and sinfully sweet
that seduces the senses
and cools down that heat

Maybe a taste
Too much is a sin
But once you have started 
you have to give in

Sometimes it’s messy
and gets in your hair
but when it's the good stuff
you really don’t care

If you're not careful
it drips down your chin
a dreamy rich cream
that makes your mouth grin

Some like it dark
and some like it light
And a mix of the two
For some is just right

Single, double, or triple
(more might be chancy!)
There’ll always be something
To tickle your fancy

Some like it plain
Simple and neat
Some prefer extras
To make it complete

A squirt of whipped cream
or maybe a drop
of chocolate syrup
with cherry on top

Using your tongue
Can be lots of fun
A lick here, a lick there
and, wow, it’s all done!

When your body’s on fire
From toes up to lips
Go grab a cool sweet
Do you catch the drips?

Submitted for Theme Thursday, Ice Cream

I haven't heard such an ode to Ice Cream since Sarah McLachlan. Nice. But now I'm hungry. I think I have some S'mores ice cream in the freezer.

That made me smile. :-)

I am very easily offended. In fact, there is very little which does *not* offend me.

I like sugar cones.

I always give in to sin. It is easier than judging each temptation on its merits.

Even though it's cool outside right now, that poem got me just a little hot and bothered....

I let it run in any crevice it wants to! I loved the contrasting videos - but I have to admit unlike Sarah, no love compares to Haagen Dazs Pralines and Cream.........
