“Look, there’s no metaphysics on earth like chocolate.” Fernando Pessoa


In my defence the block was already open,
surely an invitation to nibble and, before I
knew it, I had downed three with glee, lustily
chomping with gusto I devoured the whole
lot and a horrible thought occurred, what if 
I hadn't been here?

  1. I had Cheetos and chocolate for lunch the other day. It was easy to make but I got sick afterward.

  4. Sometimes,while gobbling up our favourite food,we don’t pay attention to the quantity,I guess,we just eat till we feel full! 🙂

  6. If you hadn’t been there someone else would have got the chocolate. Maybe someone with an allergy to it. Maybe you saved a life!
