A poem about the candy man and his magic.
He comes slowly, acting lowly, but soon is followed. There are kids all over him because he is needed. They guard him like a treasure. They are happy to a great measure, that there are candies in his bag. He has been given ‘the most wanted tag’. A girl wants a big, fat, yellow one, another one wants a green. If the parents don’t pay for it, they will be called mean. Some children just run away with candies, telling they are going to pay. There shines in the candy man’s eyes hopeful rays. Now the candy man is totally aghast, he just needs his life dear, that’s what for he prays. Children are happy running, falling, but smiling. They feel God has been happy and given them a wonderful thing. The thing is candy, it is sweet, today is the day for the great treat. Now Candyman forgets about the idea of making big money, because he us looking very funny, with torn fiat and trousers, disheveled hair. He is thinking that a man would be a hero if in this arena he dares to survive, if here God will his life luckily spare. He tries to remain calm, as best as he can, but inwardly he is not the same, is a gone crazy, half angry, half in smiles, half happy and more frustrated Candyman.
