Nibbling on Witch Fingers and Munching on Green Cotton Candy - Poem

Updated on June 15, 2020

Witch Fingers and Green Cotton Candy

I am Nibbling on Witch fingers and Munching on Green Cotton Candy. Do you know what I am eating?

Witch Fingers on my table

Nibbling on Witch fingers and Munching on Green Cotton Candy


Nibbling on Witch Fingers and Munching on Green Cotton Candy

They are so good they are really Dandy



While searching at sprouts, up and down every isle

I thought I would hang out with the fruits for a while



Pink Ladies lying on tables, Oranges baring their navels'

And Blueberries rolling like marbles when they are able



Looking at Grapes, red, black and green and what did I see

Witch Fingers pointing at me, they were strange looking at best




I must do a taste test, they are strange looking like they're covered with dew

The cost was so high but I wanted to try something new



I did not want the whole bunch, just a few, but bags were not handy

Looking around, guess what I found? Green Cotton Candy



I bought half a bunch, thinking we would have some for lunch

Hubby thought they look strange, but he was ready to munch



On my Witch Fingers and Green Cotton Candy, he would dine

The fact that I didn't get any, he did not seem to mind



So when you want something to eat, let me repeat

Witch Fingers and Green Cotton Candy is a real treat



So, if you go to Sprouts I hope they are not sold out, hope they are still handy

Witch Fingers and Green Cotton Candy

Ordinary Grapes they are not, and if you try them you'll know

Although they look strange, they are not just for show



When you put some in a bowl on your table, folks will know they're not a fable

Because it says Witch Fingers and Green Cotton Candy on the label.


I heard it through the grapevine!

Have you had Witch Fingers and Green Cotton Candy

      Hope all is well with you and that you will take great care if you go out now that things are opening up a little more now. Lots of crazy people out there now who seem to care nothing about infecting others. Blessings dear friend. Stay well.

      Yesterday at Sprouts I went to shop,

      looking for witch finger

      but what I found made me stop

      A new name they would adopt

      Witch fingers gained weight

      And now they are called Moon Drops

      Patricia, I did have fun writing this, I love when I get a sudden inspiration to write something like this. Green cotton candy? The grapes themselves are green, but they taste and smell like cotton candy.

      Angels are cleared for landing and the ones you sent last time are cleared for takeoff on their way back to you bringing Blessings and Hugs right back to you.

      Good morning Au fait, thank you for the comment, and sharing.

      It went very well, the planning and zoning commission voted to approve the denial of the request 6-0, the town hall was so packed that chairs in the lobby were full and chairs around into the hallway in front of the staff offices were full and people were standing all around.

      "We the people WON the battle" next Monday is all out war, we go before the town council and we believe that this will be harder to get it denied. Suing, yes it is in the 14th amendment that the state or country can be sued over a situation such as this.

      I will e-mail you the link to see what happened. I think there were about 35-40 people to speak before me. I basically told the commission that if they approve this, they may as well tear-up the Master Plan, because if this is approved our Master Plan means nothing.

      Love this poem as you know and decided to revisit it. I'm not sure our new friends from Squidoo have read it and they should. Going to share it again with followers.

      Hope all goes well tonight. I'll be thinking of you. Once the weather improves neighborhood teams need to be out picketing. Yes, demonstrating around city hall if you have one, especially if it's in a prominent place where lots of people will see.

      Consider suing the city of Flower Mound if the zoning is changed and therefore lowers your property value. I don't know if that's ever been done before, where a citizen sued a city for lowering their property value with their decisions, but it's worth a try, especially if you can find a lawyer who may want to make a name for him/herself by possibly going all the way to the SC.

      Best wishes, and may God be with you tonight . . .

      I was going to vote in the poll but but I could not, because the names sound familiar and I think that I have had them only I am not sure. In the back of my mind I think I picture the Witch fingers, and green cotton candy rings as some vegetable.

      I thought that the poem was beautiful. I voted it up and straight across. I shared it, pinned it and I even G+ it to see what they thought.
