Chick Chick Chick Hooray!!

Chick, Chick, Chick, Hooray!!

I love to

take those pink

marshmallow chicks

round about Easter time

all lined up

with droopy beaks

and pin point

coal black eyes,

and set them

on a plate,

which I then place

in the microwave,

setting it to about

45 seconds,

on high,

and then pushing

the power button.

Each rather average size chick
becomes a chicken that ate Cleveland.

They swell up

from the internal heat
to about four

to six times their size,

the pink fading to pale,

then after they cool a bit,

I have a rather

sugary coated

roasted marshmallow treat,

so this Easter,

Nuke a chick,

make a little bit

of your holiday,

bigger then

it really is,

and think pink.

I adore this...

Mostly because of your line about a peep swallowing Cleveland. I tried to imagine crawling through hot marshmallow. (this may be my hint that it's time to go to bed as well :p)
