Wish Poem

by Noah (age 13?)

I wish I had
a thousand dollars
I'd buy a lot of candy
Jolly Ranchers, gum, Daffy Taffys,
Airheads, Tootsie Rolls, Snickers,
Milky Ways, Skittles, M&Ms,
Mombas, KitKats, sodas

I'd be the Candy King
My country would be all chocolate
You could take a bite out of crime
You could bite the popo*
There'd be chocolate fires you could eat
There's chocolate flowers you could eat
My chocolate land would be bad
There be bad people with 22's, machine guns,
shooting the chocolate popos

But I'm the Candy King
I'd just tell the popos to leave
my chocolate land

* "popo" is slang for police
