This poem was inspired by the movie Chocolat and should rightly be called Chocophony.
A smudge of weakness dabbed with courage
Spots of prejudice blurred by kindness
Blotches of anger diffused with laughter
Paints a story in human color
Saccharine chili bitter sour,
When these failings come together
Their fusion creates many a flavor
The magic of chocolate for all to savor
There is no learning without erring
Innocence though blemishless is nothing
True perfection comes from churning
A million shades of human failing
For all you chocolate lovers out there, go find your favorite flavor, and take a bite out of life!
