Charlie the Gingerbread Man
I bet you didn't know he had a name did you? Next time you bite his head off in Costa Coffee just bear in mind he has a name, probably a family and kids.........naaaaaaa he's only a biscuit Sue from the Brew.
So I wrote a poem about him.......
He goes in your coffee to make it look cool
tasty and snappy he's nobody's fool
Bathing in lashings of aerosol cream
Surely that hot milk will make him scream
Through the steam he will appear a bit foggy
and his bum will become increasingly soggy
He is crunchy no more
as the coffee finally reaches his jaw
But who is it I hear you say?
Is it possible to get to meet him today?
The good news is it's a very big yes
have you given in or do you still want to guess?
It's Charlie the mini Gingerbread Man
available at Costa if you're a very big fan
A silky, milky, gingery mix
get it larger for a true caffeine fix
Charlie must feel that he's in a jacuzzi
unfortunately though he's not for our Suzy
She, is forced to give him the boot
as the gluten inside him, I'm afraid it don't suit
So what is the fate for this sweet little man?
after he's pleased you all that he can
It truly and honestly doesn't look bright
eaten all up, goodnight Charlie goodnight!
Aww bless him, don't that put you off drinking this latte, I've noticed that throughout his ordeal he never stops smiling so he must get satisfaction from knowing you are enjoying the treat. That's the way I'm looking at it anyway.
Thank you for reading today, please come back tomorrow for Free From Friday. For now.........
