THE DEATH OF SWEETS

BERTIE BASSETT HAS BEEN REBORN

IN A WORLD OF LICORICE

AND I'M QUITE FORLORN

FOR THIS SWEET MAN IS EVEN SWEETER

WITH A VIRAL AFFLICTION

ON HIS DELECTATION

 

HIS COMPONENT PARTS

WERE ONCE A DELIGHT

ROUNDS AND SQUARES

AN ANSWER TO MY PRAYERS

I TRUST TO MY TASTE

BUT BERTIE'S DEBASED

 

THEY'VE FILLED HIM

FULL OF GLUCOSE SYRUP

FRUCTOSE WHY BUT THERE IT IS

HE WAS SUGARY ENOUGH

NOW BERTIE'S GONE OFF

MY FAVOURITES LIST

 

NOT HIS FAULT

IT'S BY DEFAULT

HE'S BEEN SUPER CHARGED

LIKE OTHER SWEETS

AND I'M IN NO RUSH

WITH EXPECTATION.
