So Now It's Official

So now it’s official:
We humans have molecules inside us
with an affinity for chocolate,
microbes that dance with joy
to see the dark ambrosia
oozing down our intestinal tract.
Even the scientific name is delicious—
Polyphrenolic polymers. Say it out loud,
Poly-phren-olic poly-mers! See?
Just pronouncing it tastes good.
As icing on the cake, you might say,
this creamy treat can now be
considered a health food.
Life is sweet.

I must admit, I’ve always considered it a health food...

LOL...good to know I can't help the addiction, that's it's a part of what I am. A delightful photo, Carol. V

A beautiful image, and the best poem ever, I love chocolate especially the dark stuff! V

This poem and it's preceding technicolor tease, melts in my mouth and my hand. I don't care what Mars wants us to believe. More please.

a delectable visual ode, and a cluster to savour...dark chocolate (with no candy filling) is one of life's great pleasures...the antioxidants within apparently offer worthwhile health benefits too...
