Background

“Toffee’s not good for you”

     Granny would say.

“You leave it alone now

     And go out to play.”

 

“It’s bad for you teeth;

     Not good for your hair -”

“But Granny, I like it.

     That’s not really fair.”

 

“It will stick in your throat;

     Wind itself round your heart.

It will coil round your liver

     And that’s just the start.”

 

So the toffee was kept

     Up on Granny’s top shelf.

Now Gran’s lost all her teeth -

     So did she eat it herself?
