I used to snack on
mint chocolate chip ice cream.
Any brand, any texture, from any store.
It was all the same: fairly dull, sometimes sweet,
and always made me feel a little sick later.
Then I found green tea.
It took a while before I was given permission
But once I did I was hooked
Like a soda-addict, or a chipaholic;
I no longer wanted mint chocolate chip
I have green tea.
