What is a Jolly Rancher?

What is a Jolly Rancher?

It's a sweet,

That's neither blanch, nor bland,

Fitting nicely in the palm of my hand.

It's like a song you can't help but love,

A plush pillow you just want to hug,

A warm embrace on a chilly night,

Or a treat in summer time.

Jolly Ranchers, Jolly Ranchers,

Oh, they smell so divine,

One of the best sweetmeats in life.

They are a way to test your personality,

Or just let someone know you care.

A Jolly Rancher can be


Or green;


Or anything in between,

Yet they still live together,

In the same package,

On the same store shelf,

In perfect harmony.

You never see them bicker

If you choose to eat another.

Throw a tantrum,

Start a riot.

We humans believe we're always so right,

And that we're so bright,

And superior to those unlike ourselves.

Why can't we just live our lives,

Being like Jolly Ranchers,

And loving everyone alike?
