Poetry by Jeff Green


My Choice!

You find a bowl of Ben and Jerry’s
Now you’re guaranteed a treat
Each spoonful stuffed with nuts and cherries
Cold and smooth and tart and sweet

Or maybe simple suits you better
Häagen-Dazs explodes with taste
But go and buy a baggy sweater
Either brand goes to the waist

Home made chocolate, flavours tripled
Clotted cream and toffee chips
Smooth vanilla, raspberry rippled
Lasts a lifetime on the hips

We have to pay a price for pleasure
Life’s a bitch or so they say
Sin in haste repent at leisure
I like living life this way!

Author notes

Mmmmm ice-cream …

Better go and raid the freezer
