I was playing with sonnets and decided to go on a tangent. A cute, funny sonnet appeared, about Jelly Beans!

Jelly beans, luverly sugary food

Vitamins, minerals, eat ‘em all day

Glucose for energy, flavor imbued

Pharmacies stock ‘em – what more can I say?


Bagfuls of colors I munch without shame

Waltzing around in my belly, a ball,

Wondering how they came up with the name

Not made of beans, and no jelly at all!


Pick out a blue one, a yellow beneath

Red and then green, well perhaps just one more…

Syrupy goo, feeling good in my teeth

One’s not enough, cram in two, three or four.


Nothing else like them, believe me, I’ve looked

Jelly beans have me, confession: I’m hooked!
