Hungry are you too? as I’m
Ordering for myself the
Tastiest ever Icecream sundae!
Chocolate is melted into a
Hot sauce that is poured
Over two scoops of fresh vanilla
Churned ice cream that is
Lip smackingly delicious once it’s
Adorned with loads of
Toasted nuts ready to give you
Energy to boost your mood

Glazing it with a sweetness that is
Eternally blissful to the core
