In the Box

I picked them all at random
Not noticing the package
I did not want the wrapping
To prevent me from partaking

The first one burst into my mouth
A liquid sweet liquor
The remnants of the cherry
Relished for a moment more

Next was slightly square and hard
But sweet all the same
The longest chew did skew my jaw
Relieved the end it came

Several more of various shapes
Tasted much the same
A smooth blend of flavour unknown
Coloured in different ways

Then the most shocking ones
A sour batch of bites
Some so nasty I spat them out
Hastily cleaned my mouth

For a box labelled favourites
I found so very few
The hard ones tiresome and long
The good ones gone too soon
