Contents: A nation of shopkeepers --
Food of the gods --
Wretched little victims of the workhouses --
They did not show us any mercy --
Absolutely pure, therefore the best --
Chocolate that could melt in the mouth --
Machinery creates wealth but destroys men --
Money seems to disappear like magic --
Chocolate empires --
I'll stake everything on chocolate! --
Great wealth is not to be desired --
A serpentine and malevolent cocoa magnate --
The chocolate man's utopia --
That monstrous trade in flesh and blood --
God could have created us sinless --
This company isn't big enough for both of us --
I pray for snickers --
American tanks were on the lawn --
The quaker voice could still be heard --
They'd sell for 20p --
Gone. And it was so easy.
Responsibility: Deborah Cadbury.
