If you were listening to the show earlier today, you’ll have heard guest Gilly Walker and the Girls Around Town sharing a Chocolate Moment with a difference…
In case you missed it – or if you’d like to enjoy it again – here’s Gilly’s sonnet; for a reminder of the story behind it, visit Gilly’s website here…
Chocolate – a love story
We’ve had a life-long love affair, we two.
Though times I’ve tried to leave you and be free
It never lasts and I return to you –
I can never have enough of you, you see.
You’ve been my solace in a hostile world,
You’ve been my sweetness, oh, and my delight.
You’re there for me, your wrapper comes unfurled
At any time of day, or even night.
But I must give you up, I know I must,
Though it leaves a space that I can never fill.
I think of you and I am filled with lust
And seeing your rich brown body’s quite a thrill.
But here’s the thing: I’m getting rather fat, and clothing-wise things are a little tight.
I’ll give you up, I swear I will, I must. But even so, not without a fight.
