For ABC Wednesday(Letter Y),  Alphabe Thursday(Letter G)

“What is this place I am in now?”, asked Lady to the Girl with a curl
“This is New York N…,” answered the Girl
And Lady cut Girl off mid-word with a, “Thank God, I am still at home”
She had worried for a second when she opened her eyes on the way and saw something like Rome
As she took a deep breath, she smelled….something sweet..
“Girl! I think I am in for a treat.
Lots of sugary chewy jelly bean,
At this, Betty said, “Of course, you are right” with a grin
“You are in New York New York, Las Vegas
A Glued together mass of sugar like me, my lass!
And if you are hungry, my dear
You can start with your ear…”

  7. I at first thought The Lady was made out of Skittles but now read it is jelly beans. Wow, that truly is a lot of sugar. I liked your scorpion acrostic and when I look at that sign I start craving a big giant burger but then my heart says it could not handle the change.
