CHOCOLATE
by Ray Rodgers

Why is this still chocolate?
Why does it still tempt me?
Why I still would want this,
After all these years
I just can't see,
why I would still go hungry,
waiting for something
special in my feed.

Why must I adore this?
Why can't I just ignore it?
Why can't I find my salvation
in a simple substitute,
something to distract me,
a wall between the passion
and the fruit?

When's this ever going to be enough?
When's the waitress going to ease her clutch?
When I walk away,
when I close my eyes,
she always calls my bluff.

Why does this still please me?
Why does my need still seize me?
Why would I scorch my senses
in another frenzy of desire...
for something to engulf me
and leave me begging helpless
at the fire?

Why is this still chocolate?
Why's it still so moist?
Why's it seem I get to choose,
when I’ve really got no choice?
I will always sit here waiting,
for another little morsel
in which to rejoice.

When's this ever going to be too much?
When's the waitress going to ease her clutch?
When I walk away,
when I close my eyes,
She always calls my bluff.

Order up!
