Once in a generation, a loved confectionary selection box is sullied by an act of such indecency (widely referred to in the media as Coffeegate) that even the corruptest CEO’s of the crookedest criminal corporations cringe in compassion. (Who said alliter-exaggeration was dead?) Note: some readers may find this poem distressing…
Roses Coffee Sweet
Come all ye gluttons of sticky tooth
Cock yer taste pores to my bitter truth!
A treasonous trickery is being played
With Roses foulest milseán* ever made.
Their Coffee chew, aka “the devils child”,
Unwanted, unloved, cocoa defiled
Has been defrocked, reshaped and wrapped again!
And is choking women, children, men.
Few beguiled by the wrapper green
Have ever again the daylight seen. So hark!
Eat one less, reading the label often
Or risk a chocolate coated coffee coffin.
