Poem: "Public Displays of Confection"

This poem is today's second freebie, courtesy of new prompter Stephen Laird.  It was inspired by a prompt from my_partner_doug.


Public Displays of Confection


At first there was
the Hershey's kiss:
a simple dollop
of milk chocolate
wrapped in
demure silver.

Then came the
Hershey's hug,
milk chocolate
coated with
white chocolate.

When the
coconut creme
ones arrived,
they were
nicknamed
Hershey's
blow jobs,

and as for the
cherry cordial --
well, you can
guess where
that  went.

Although made
by another
company, it was
perhaps inevitable
that the bar of
ginseng-wasabi
dark chocolate
would be dubbed
Hershey's mindfuck.
