Lent poem #41

Sugar, sugar everywhere and all the eggs are CHOCOLATE!

 

Shop shelves heave

with ovals of hollow chocolate.

Empty vessels:

with empty meaning for most.

Ribboned and wrapped,

beautified and boxed.

Temptation by the ton,

bedecked with sugar and colour.

A celebration or exploitation

of Easter?
