Your Poem: The Chocolate Orange.

Byline: J McNally, Litherland

Tap it then unwrap it, that's what the advert claimed, So we tapped it and unwrapped it, But the thing was still the same. So we rewrapped it and repacked it But what were we to do?

We hit it with a hammer and we hit it with a shoe.

No matter what we hit it with, it wouldn't break in two.

We kicked it and we threw it hard against the wall, But all our efforts were in vain, the thing was still a ball. We took it to the top of the stairs and dropped it from a height.

But that little ball of chocolate was putting up a fight.

Fourteen stairs it bounced down and rolled along the hall But those little orange segments were determined not to fall.

So next time I fancy a chocolate orange in a hurry, I'll just go to McDonald's for a Chocolate Orange McFlurry.
