Crunch With Care

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub :  Quadrille #46 – “Crunch”  (posted by De)
“Crunchy. Crunched. Crunching. Crunch-alicious. Crunch through those autumn leaves. Listen to the crunch of snow under your tires. Maybe eat a Crunch bar for some sweet inspiration. Crunch is a great onomatopoeia word, so have some fun with sound, if you like.”

Before you munch crunchy
corn chips or almonds
be sure your teeth are strong.
Never mistake your lip
for a chip. Ow! Taking
a crispy risk is not on your list?
Buy a bunch of bananas;
no crunch. Mix them with yogurt
for lunch.

  1. Ouch. Lips not good for crunching. Plus bananas have more health benefits than chips.
