Hints of Sour Acidity in Candyland

It crackles

and hisses

in a most displeasing fashion.

I want to cover my ears

to blot out it’s noise.

But I’m afeared

that something more sinister

is yet to come.

.

When I fall to temptation

my hands are seen

and they are swiftly

reprimanded.

.

Mixed in the harsh words

of before

are now sugary doughy words made

to look like a grandmother’s baking.

It’s guilting me!

.

It’s quite unsettling

to hear crackles and whistles

and not be able to block them out

due to the fear of harming

the virtuous sweetness.

.

Everyone else has already

been drawn in by the honey trap,

I can’t speak an ill word of it

without being refuted.

.

I don’t think it’s a mask.

I don’t think it’s two faces.

I don’t know what it is.

But I know it’s not imaginary

because I’ve heard the rumors

that something is rotten

in bewitched’s state of Candyland!
