Lost Jelly Bean
frogilicus

Somebody dropped their the jelly bean,
 1
it wasn't my jelly bean,
 2
but it was, A, jelly bean,
 3
and now it's crushed.
 4
 
 
Smeared into the sidewalk like used candy,
 5
sugar crystals devoid of ant like interests,
 6
maybe if somebody had not stepped on them,
 7
the ant's would feast a-la thanksgiving.
 8
 
 
And on the bottom of that persons shoe,
 9
federal aid for those Formicidae slowly wears away,
 10
on side walk and pavement alike,
 11
maybe on that persons floor mat, what a shame.
 12
 
 
Somebody dropped a Jelly Bean,
 13
and all his fellow beans of jelly tried to follow him,
 14
what a sad buffalo run from the box it must have been,
 15
taking the plunge from child like delight as they did.
 16
 
 
Somebody dropped a Jelly Bean,
 17
A jelly bean hath been dropped,
 18
stepped on and shunned by the insect community,
 19
devoid of it's sole ambition of happiness.
