Spare a thought for the life of a Jelly Baby
From factory to store shelf then onto you
It’s a mixed up and not so sweet moment
That needs consideration that’s long overdue
For these babies just sit there and await
The hand of fate to dip right into the bag
And drag out their friends and associates
To devour without a seconds time lag
And then as they cower from the pincers
Of greedy fingers aligned with such glee
They hear the conversation discuss quite overtly
Which part will be bitten off first horribly!
For some will chomp off the head in one sitting
Whilst others will nibble away at each limb
So spare a thought for those poor Jelly Babies
For their chances of survival are slim!
Note: Jelly Babies are a soft confectionery in the shape of babies in many different colours.
