Bourbon's the winner

On your marks.......
It's break time
Our stomachs are rumbling,
The anticipation of biscuits crumbling,
Be quick to stop us runners from grumbling.

Get set.........
It's snack time
Peel the finishing tape off the tin,
Cellophane unwrapped to get within,
The chocolatey bourbon is the prize to win.

It's race time
The starting gun goes crack,
Lips begin to smack,
There is no holding back.

The finishing line's in sight,
So many biscuits to bite,
Yet the bourbon's our shining light,
The biscuit lover's true delight.

  1. Fantastic! You've got me reaching for the biscuit rats!

    1. I'm not allowed to eat biscuits during the week at the moment (Dictat from the wife) so after reading this I'm REALLY looking forward to the weekend.

  2. From Keith with thanks for your poetry and to Wikepedia.
    The Bourbon was introduced in 1910 (originally under the name Creola) by the Bermondsey biscuit company Peek Freans, of London, originator of the Garibaldi biscuit. It was named by combining Bournville and Bonn where Dr Zehnloch the inventor of the biscuit lived.
    Would they taste as nice if they were called Creola?


Please tell us what you think about our poems and the biscuits
