``A Food Lover's Companion by Evan Jones (Harper & Row, 1979) includes this poem by Stanley J. Sharpless:

Half past nine - high time for supper;
``Cocoa, love? ``Of course, my dear.
Helen thinks it quite delicious,
John prefers it now to beer....
For they've stumbled on the secret
Of a love that never wanes,
Rapt beneath the tumbled bedclothes,
Cocoa coursing through their veins.
