‘Two for me, none for you’ by John Alwyine-Mosely

Twinkle, twinkle chocolate bar

Oh I wonder what you are.

 …

Silky to touch and burnt as sun

just like the boy of Kwasi Bunn

who goes to work and not to school

And like his dad they say a fool.

 …

Twinkle, twinkle chocolate bar

Oh I wonder what you are.

 …

Gentle and soft but twist to snap,

just like the sleep ended by slap,

so trees are climbed to slice and chop

for bean or thumb to pop and plop.

 …

Twinkle, twinkle chocolate bar

Oh I wonder what you are.

 …

Earthy and sweet for tongue and lip,

borne high in sacks on back or hip

then marched to cell for corn and paste

and wash in water fresh with waste

Twinkle, twinkle chocolate bar

Oh I wonder what you are.

 …

Milky and rich from meadow grass

all green like boys who spray and gas

the bugs in fleshy skin and bone

to die, for what is reaped is sown

 …

Twinkle, twinkle chocolate bar

Oh I wonder what you are.
