"My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy the ice cream while it's on your plate Thornton Wilder
It's in our hospitals,
it's on the streets,
it's even in our very homes,
right this second.
Their labels reflect their meaning.
Those who choose the Rocky Road
will have a difficult path.
There's a wild animal on the loose.
And what about the ones who give us such choices?
The ones who invade our neighborhoods?
The ones who deliver unto us our super special awesome double chocolate fudge delight with swirls of caramel and peanut butter?
The Ice Cream Truck.
The Ice Cream Truck is their messenger.
The familiar ting-a-ling it plays,
beckons the hearts of the innocent
to the vanilla,
the fruity delights of Popsicles shaped like Snoopy's head,
or rocket ships.
It scares me that it isn't just a normal Ice Cream Truck.
It scares me how it plays a harmonic melody that soothes the children into an ice cream ravaging trance
that forces their parents to give them money to pacify their souls,
