Curiously Strong

Never thought I’d see the day
That peppermint actually packed a punch
A hundred percent natural and either-way
They’re a curiously strong bunch

Produced under King George the third
A two hundred year old mint, now that’s unheard (of)
I don’t know how to feel popping one after eating chicken
Knowing this was probably eaten by Charles Dickens

Then again Coke was introduced in Eighteen Eighty Six
So it could be that he also drank that mix

Sugar, Gum Arabic, and Oil of Peppermint
In your mouth will leave their imprint
All in all I’m pretty glad
That I always have –

Altoids
