Guys Catching Up

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub -“Brand Name Noodling”
(posted by Lillian)
Choose ONE category FROM THE THREE GIVEN BELOW.
Include AT LEAST TWO of the brands listed IN YOUR CHOSEN CATEGORY, in the BODY of your poem.
Use the brand name’s words as words.
If one of the brand names you select has two words in it, try to use the two words in the same order as the brand does.
PLEASE NOTE : If you choose the Candy Bar category, do not write a poem about candy bars, including three of the candy bar names in your poem. Instead, use the words to refer to something other than a candy bar. Noodle with the words in the brand name!

HINT: You may find the need to use a form of the word – as in “mounded” or “mounding” instead of “mounds”. BUT – a synonym for the word will not count. IE using the word “piles” instead of “mounds” will not fulfill the prompt.

Here’s my pick:

CANDY BARS
Charleston Chew
Butterfinger
Chuckles
Kit-Kat
Snickers
Milky Way
Mr. Goodbar
Mars Bar
5th Avenue
Oh, Henry!
Pay Day
Baby Ruth
Mounds
Krackel
Twix
3 Musketeers

Well krackel my knuckles,
there’s Mr. Goodbar. What
is he doing on Fifth Avenue?
I heard he moved to
the suburbs when Baby Ruth
was born. Let’s go say
hello. No? Why not?
Oh, Henry! Don’t be such
a butterfinger. Not his
fault that they chose
him over you. Your big
payday will come. Look,
he’s headed into the Mar’s
Bar. Must be five years
since I saw him. We need
to catch up.

    Nice use of those candy bar names. I like the phrase: “krackel my knuckles”.

    Candy Bars and perfumes seem to rule the day. Ah.. and breakfast cereals. They all seem like naturals. Well done.
