ENJOY YOUR 

ICE CREAM TREATS

Enjoy Your Ice Cream Treats

I’m placed within an ice cream cone,

      And shown with utmost pride –

And then I’m left to my own thoughts

       Deep down, deep down inside.

 

I’m a squishy, squashy, mushy mess

     If left out in the sun,

But I’ve been placed within the hands

      Of a certain little one.

 

I’m licky and I’m sticky but

     The freezer keeps me cool –

And my brothers and my sisters

      Quickly vanish after school.

 

A mother comes into the shop

      And her small child points to me.

I’m enticing, I’m delicious

     As I think you’ll all agree.

 

Small hands are clasped around my cone,

      And then a tongue appears,

And, lick by lick, and bite by bite,

       It confirms my utmost fears.
