No One Wants to Give up Chocolate

(theme: no one wants___)

Even to attain
the ogle-worthy bodies
men, women, or both
depending on preference
find so alluring,

Even though wives tales
say it affects complexion.

Because we all remember
the joy of cookies, fresh baked
after stellar report cards
or basketball court victories,
rewards on a plate.

Because we all
have a memory
of apology chocolate
born by a girlfriend, boyfriend
or relative
after some wrongdoing.

Because in spite of everything,
I’ve learned I still believe
“There’s a smile
in every Hershey bar.”
