 ice cream coneIce Creamice cream cone

I bought some ice cream at the store,
Ate it all, but wanted more...
Got a two-scoop,
wafer cone,
Nuts and sprinkles,
Brought it home...
double scoop cone
Still I hadn't had enough,
Give me more,
Cold, sweet stuff!
To the store I went again,
Got a
triple-scoop, my friend...
triple scoop cone
It was gone,
My stomach growled,
"Give me Ice cream!"
Is what it howled...
At the store, yet again,
Begged the owner-
his name was Ben,
"Give me a quadruple-scoop, triple
fudge swirl,
Make it a double, with a
strawberry whirl!"
Ben stacked nice ice cream,
At least
two-feet too high,
Then gave a grave look at me,
Right in my eye..
.
two feet of ice cream
"Listen kid,
If you eat all this now,
You're gonna' be sick,
And as big as a cow...
 
cow
But
I ate, and I ate, and I ate, and I ate,
Until it was gone,
And I was still feeling great!!!
Was I quite finished?
Was I quite done?

No!
Give me an ice cream,
As big as the sun!

sun
Ben's hands were tired from scooping ice cream,
I stood and I watched as if in a dream.
Rocky Road, Coffee, Caramel Whipped Cream,
French Vanilla so sweet, Mint Chocolate Green...
Chewy
Cherry Chocolate Chip, Crunchy Crunch Bar,
Marshmallow Mushy Fudge, my favorite so far!
Bubble Gum, Spaghetti, and Pizza ice cream,
Taco,
Egg Roll, every flavor I dream!
And when Ben was done,
Scooping sweet stuff,
He gave it to me and said,
"Kid, I hope it's enough..."
I took the cone,
That was piled so high,
That cold from ice cream,
Brought rain from the sky...

Ice cream so high,
It pained me to think,
Was I really not hungry?
Did I just want a drink?
lemonade

I don't like to say it,
But the truth is quite true,
I didn't want ice cream,
Can I give it to you?
I asked a few people,
If they wanted to eat,
But they had to have dinner,
And couldn't eat sweets...
So I let it all melt,
Into a sea of ice soup,
That covered the world,
In one great big loop...
People sailed through it,
In banana split boats,
Castles were surrounded,
By ice cream filled moats...
And people ate it,
And ate it,
And ate it they did,
And the sea got smaller,
Like an
adult to a kid..
.
adult= kid
It was soon so small,
That folks couldn't find it,
I know it sounds bad,
but
I didn't mind it...
Explorers now search,
To locate the spot,
Do I tell where it is???
I think quite...
NOT!!!!!
It
never runs out,
And it's
always so good,
I don't like to share it,
But I know that I
should...
The ice cream's still sweet,
As
sweet as can be,
Maybe one day,
You'll come share some with me...
