ABC Poem About An Imaginary Trip

Writing for the Summer Poetry Competition brought out the child within me with a sweet tooth, who has been screaming to come out. As a little girl, I did dream of running away to consume chocolate 24-hours a day. What I really wanted then was to have dessert as the first course for my meal, not after I already filled up from savouries. Today I finally managed to indulge in my dream on paper. Having my favourite fairy tale characters joining my sugary feast is just an added bonus.

Seeing Fairy Godmother and Prince,
Turning pumpkin into candy floss on string.

Unstoppable I would enjoy the sweets,
Vanilla ice cream and many more treats
While swimming with Little Mermaid in a chocolate pond.
Xylophone would be playing our favourite song.

You are right, my teeth will rot.
Zero chance for me to be slim and hot.
