What I did for Lent

By John Ross Harvey

Many of us, give up something for Lent.
Perhaps it’s Coffee, or Potato Chips
Perhaps it’s meat or Fish
I decided to avoid Chocolate.
Why you ask?
Well, if there’s any in the house I eat it.
Little York mint balls, Aeros, smarties
The festive special from Swiss Chalet Lindors
Lots of chocolate in the house
That was the most tempting thing for me
I fell off the wagon Tuesday night when
My wife handed me half of a large Caramilk
But since then I have been good
But now there’s a whole bag of Chocolate truffles
Sitting in our office kitchen taunting me
I’m sweating bullets
I’ll let you know if pass this test.
