Ode to Oreos

Crunchy chocolate cookies and cream

Frothy glass of milk for dunking

A taste supreme, layered daydream

Childhood Snack King

***

A pairing of bitter and sweet

Like the one found in memories

From after school to post work treat

Just one more, please!

    So relatable, and I like the rhyme used to make the reader think of childhood! "Frothy glass of milk for dunking" favourite line D.K.

    Mmm, Oreos. And yes, memories are bitter and sweet too. I like that comparison.
