Cherry Cordial Blues

Cherry Cordial Blues

Arriving at home

No longer alone

From a day’s long work

That has few perks

“I’m home” I cry

Silence my only reply

No kids to trample me

No love saying “Hi Sweetie”

In all of the still quiet

My stomach growls like a riot

“Go to the kitchen and munch”

“You haven’t fed me since lunch”

Towards the kitchen I creep

The place seems asleep

What awaits as I enter

To quell my hunger bitter?

Behold on the counter

I was surprised to encounter

Something better than berries

A box of chocolate cherries

I picked up the box

And as sly as a fox

Fancied why they were here

Of course, a gift from my dear

I fingered the treasure

And smelled it with pleasure

Hidden inside I knew

Was nature’s best dew

My teeth pierced a bit

Through the chocolate

And out ran the juice

On my tongue like a noose

I ate another then another

Like a bear in the summer

And fell on the couch

As I filled my pouch

Then I saw in the box

Hitting me like a pox

Words on a note

That my honey had wrote

“Happy Birthday dear sister

Who I missed in December

I know you like to eat

This your favorite treat”

Shocked and confused

And not a whit amused

I ran out the door

To avoid a big war

I arrived at the store

And opened the door

Mrs. Cavanaugh’s smile

Was long as the Nile

“How do you do?

Would you like Nuts & Chews?

A toffee or cream—

What is your dream?”

“To save my life

From the hands of my wife

Cherry Cordials I need

In a hurry, I plead”

I made it back home

No reason to moan

Nobody was there

But I had to stare

At the cherries I ate

Man they were great

And my stomach was happy

It was time for a nappy.
