For National Caramel Day a poem by Angela Blacklock-Brown

Aw, deep-fried Mars,
ah spied ye oan the menu
o ma local chippie.
A speshialtie o Caledonia,
wee, fudgie, chocolate, caramel bar,
ma hert’s desire,
bung fu o calories,
cholesterol choked,
cannae whack ye,
a cracker, a stoater.
Unwrapped, in the scud,
belly-flopped in batter
an frazzled tae perfection.
