Delicious History Lesson

Chris Columbus known to discover
Prince Philip of Spain, some will argue
In Europe, it spread, then and forever
Now worldwide for always on cue

Different shades of brown all the way to white
The search, the desire, the need to satisfy
From darkness of night, all the way to the light
Antioxidants abound, some not I cannot lie

Bitter, sweet, varieties to create
Royalty, nobles, warriors, and soldiers
Select few centuries ago; not so of late
South America, a place for what cures

In search by many a woman and man
The solid, the melted, all types for indulgence
The mood will change and smiles will land
The craving appears, quite often intense

Fermentation, roasting, drying in the sun
Crushed to a powder with cacao anew
First boxful by Cadbury; now by the ton
Favorite to many and unknown to few
