I’m havin’ a Madeleine moment
With this bag eh Minstrels.
Mad meditating over bygone days.
Havin a long stare off into fuck all.
Filled with thoughts of me holy communion.
I took me massive little white gloves off
Me tiny little hands,
An I had an unchipped french manicure miracle all day.
Me ma did me nails the night before.
And I was delighted wi’ life
Sitting in the back of our navy Nissan
Goin’ around all dee aunties
Gettin’ told I was just
I’m batting me eyelashins still.
And I knew it
I was massive.
This was the first time
I ripped a packet of Minstrels open,
And the paper glided
Like scissors on sexy chris’mas wrapping paper.
And sucked on one eh dem Minstrels
Until the heat of me mouth cracked their shell open.
The soft, sweet, melted chocolate
Poured its insides out to me,
Like forbidden fruit or me first secret
On’ee I was allowed have dem.
This was me real holy communion.
Chocolate exposed itself to my tastebuds
I was alive for the first time.
This moment is deeply ingrained in my memory.
Like a Minstrels virgin!
For the very first time.
High on life, and a
Rakeload of sugar.
I have seen the light
I thought to meself.
Holy God has blessed me
An’ now I know that
This is what the holy bread should taste like
Not that tasteless rubbish
That sticks to the top of your pallet
And you take ages trying to get it off wit your tongue
And give up and pull it off wit your finger instead
An your ma gives out to you
Holy God is watchin’ you!
Jesus was brown
So the body of Christ should be holy chocolate too!
Gimme the holy Minstrel!
