An Eldritch Tale of Sweets
Somewhere over licorice bridge is a magical place
where all good children love to go to stuff their pimply face
There's sweets galore, and what's more; you never brush your teeth
There's gummy bares with jelly stares and marshmallow-paved streets
A veritable paradise! but if you eat a lot
An overdose might put you into hypoglycemic shock
And suddenly you might just wish that you had stayed in bed
When you wind up visiting the city of the dead!
It's quite a trip, I tell you, for I've been there recently
It's much better than anything that's playing on TV
The sugar eats away your brain and leaves you in a state
Your eyes collapse, your nose implodes, your teeth deteriorate
But in the end it's worth it, if only for the view
The colours are so bright after a candy bar or two!
