Poem: Lovely and Sweet

I have read (and it must be true)
That we all eat
36 teaspoons of sugar a day, Do you?

And now, if I may, I’d like to take
That last piece of cake!

If I continue in this way
Someday I may,
Turn into a sugar cube,
And end up in someone’s cup of tea,
(Then I’ll be lovely and sweet).

That may be my Fate,
And then they’ll say,
It must have been something she ate!

That last piece of cake!
