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)
