Sugar Rush
by Alexandra Carr-Malcolm

I’m whacked out on sugar,
my mood it is high,
I’m giddy and playful,
just look at me fly!

No need to worry,
I’m prepared for the crash,
I have foamy bananas,
in my secret stash!

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: This is a whimsical poem written about my favourite sweets – foamy bananas. I find them irresistible and sometimes have a secret hoard of them in my writing desk. They are an essential must for writing and editing.
