Jelly Beans

Jelly Beans
a bowl is passed
full of colourful jelly beans
take a moment to consider
what is held in this bowl
can we resist
the temptation to take one
with it’s sugary coat
hiding what is within?
play with this concept
maybe honour the child
the child of past times
then ask does this bowl
hold what we are seeking
and give it a pass if it doesn’t align
