Sugar Licking Lilly

Hail Ms. Sugar Licking Lilly
She's a sweet tooth for gingerbread men
Eyes swimming in ice cream
Devouring whole a jar of strawberry jam

She drinks black coffee or vanilla bean
Stirring in chocolate bars and licorice
Bathes in ice water and sweetened tea
Pleasing herself with jars of jelly beans and jolly ranchers

Proud nightingale of the Easter Parade
Goddess of sugar flowers and cadbury eggs
Mountain of sweetness on display
She's Willy Wonka's madame, Sugar Licking Lilly

Lol)..wonder who you wrote this one about, you? or was your inspiration? I've had good gingerbread cookies this past month, espresso- (vanilla bean sounds good), then had to switch to black coffee (again), chocolate, (ghirardelli)- tonight (though staggered)- my sweet confession, ha ha) oh..actually a shared box of Sees last week))
