Poetry Prompt: Wonkapoem

Stars of the 1971 film, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory recently reunited on the Today show to celebrate the film’s 44th anniversary. For this week’s prompt, take inspiration from Mr. Wonka himself by crafting a candy-inspired poem. Visit the Candy Wrapper Archive (yes, there truly is a website for everything) and craft a poem from words you find on the wrappers.
