I really love toffee and taffy and cake
The blueberry muffins my Dad likes to bake
And icing and jello and coconut ice
And licorice and chocolate and brownies are nice.

I went to the doctor. (I felt a bit sick.)
He poked in my mouth with a short wooden stick.
He said, “There’s no cure and there’s no magic pill—
You’re now MADE of sugar and that’s why you’re ill!”
