Bitter, me?

Bitter, me?
Oh yes, one of my five tastes
Sweet, savory, salty, pungent
and then there's bitter...

My bitterness is not
Organic, green, dandelion leaves or ginger
Hot, cold, Swedish or otherwise
A tonic

My bitterness is not
Organic, shade grown, black tea or coffee
Hot, cold, Italian or otherwise
An amphetamine

My bitterness is
Organic, intense, dark, the heart of the cocoa bean
Pure, chocolate, sweetened with cream and always
An aphrodisiac...
