My Addiction

My Addiction... I force my self to admit. I gotta have some or I'll throw a fit. Ok, maybe I am exaggerating just a bit. Just the same my addiction is legit. I say unto the world I am a holic. It is the thing that every day gives me that kick. Not one or two but three time a days does trick. I never run out for fear of getting sick. This was no accident, this addiction I openly pick. I am not the only person with this habit I have I ever met. Same as all you others, I have no regret. Anyone wish to wager, I will take that bet. I am not selfish with you I'll share if only you'll let. There is nothing better to let go of a frown. It comes also in white but I prefer brown. It makes me happy and and so I clown. It is not hard to find in fact it's everywhere in town. As long as I have some I never feel down. I am sure everyone has it wrong. Makes me wanna beat on my chest like king Kong. I am about to tell you, it won't be long. In fact, I will sing it in a song! "Hershey makes the very best..... Chocolate'! Jesse Wesley Bailey Jr.

    What a bait 'n switch! I thought, for sure, it was about drug addiction; humorous, babbling, rap-like poetry. Well written, nonetheless. I like it.
