Be the Chocolate Bard 2014

The Cadbury chocolate festival in Dunedin (the one with the Jaffas down Baldwin Street) takes place soon, and offers some lucky person the chance to be the Chocolate Bard and win huge chocolatey prizes. Here are some of our poems, plus some of the class having a chocolate “lesson”:

Everything is filled with chocolate

Sea filled with chocolate
A world filled with chocolate
My mouth filled with chocolate
My heart filled with chocolate



Chocolate rainforest

Chocolate parakeets soaring across the sky
I think I’ve gone to heaven
I think I might have died
A waterfall of luxury tumbles down from above
Smooth, creamy and delicious
I think I’ve found true love

Freddo frogs leap through the air
Croaking with delight
Chocolate vines caress my skin
melting in the light

Chocolate fish swim with ease
Splashing in the stream
With a jolt I sit up straight
and realise it was all a dream

In-store self debate

Rows and rows sit atop the stores shelves
Locked behind their foil cages
You aren’t just chocolate
You’re an angel in disguise.
Caramello, Topdeck and all.

Oh my! Toothpaste $2.50

But I don’t want toothpaste
I need chocolate!
I crave chocolate!
I desire a marvellous creation!
A block of beautiful Topdeck falls to my cart
Okay. now I can get toothpaste.
