Duff Dry

Similar to people, they
come in all forms.  Short
ones, tall ones, flat ones,
bubbly ones, sweet ones,
bitter ones.  Digestible ones,
and difficult to digest.  Attractive
ones, and outright ugly ones.
Dark, pale, yellow and mixed.
Addictive ones, and ones which
turn you off at first taste.
But no matter how they are,
you'll always try another!
