Have you ever been to the last pick and mix in the world? Raspberry and blackberry gummies.
It is tucked away, Sugar mice and fudge.
In the corner of the old city, Sprinkles on chocolate.
Down the dusty alley, Strawberry logs and watermelon slices.
And tucked in the back of the tragedy shop, Dracula teeth.
You scoop them up and squish them, Jelly beans and chocolate nuts.
Take them to the sticky counter to be measured and weighed, Lime bombs.
But it never matters, Spaceships, gummy bears, and fizzy blues.
The price is the same, Cola bottles and beans.
You must give the goaty shopkeeper your childhood, Scottish tablet.
And then leave the last pick and mix in the tragedy shop, down the dusty alley, in the old city, at the end of the world. Liquorice laces and red cables.
And eat your sweets all grown, Orange and lemon pips.
And never return, Sour drops.
