Dark chocolate

Dark Chocolate

The internet said something that sounded insane;

that dark chocolate was good for the brain.

On Saturday, while I was riding on the train,

passengers next to me ate chocolate in vain.


I am diabetic, so I should not eat

dark chocolate, or anything sweet.

The people ate it right in my face,

I couldn’t help but covet a taste.


Dark chocolate is good for the heart.

But in my case, I cannot use dark.

I wish that sugar is a thing I could use;

but it just might be a limb that I lose!
