40 Days of Blogging Day 37: The Candy Cane

Walking stick for a sweet old lame elf
Shepherd's crook for cotton-candy sheep
Peeks out of stockings hung from the shelf
Waiting for children to wake from their sleep

Red white then red, white red then white
Hypnotic spins to a tongue-piercing tip
When the last hook disappears from sight
There's nothing left but sweetness on the lip

A symbol of Christmas, the old candy cane
A treat once looked forward to with hope
The staff of a benevolent king come to reign
And an all-encompassing holiday trope
