My Ode to Snacks

Snacks are lovely, Snacks are nice,

I eat them often, I never think twice,

Sometimes it’s chocolate, Sometimes its’ chips,

Sometimes its crackers: with my favourite dips.


Whenever I’m peckish or needing a lift,

I look in the pantry, or my lolly dish,

There’s toffee and liquorice; chocolate and chew,

With wrappings of red; green, yellow and blue.


I eat them at lunchtime and often at night,

Or watching the cricket, or needing a bite,

I eat them for comfort, for feeling ok,

My lollies are friends I eat every day.
