The famous experiment gave pre-schoolers a marshmallow.
Eat it now and enjoy, or wait 15 minutes and get another.
Some started eating right away, putting others in agony…
watching. They twisted and turned, talked to each other,
looked away, trying to endure. Some made it. Some ate.
One child proved very unique. He saved, saved, and saved.
And saved some more. He never ate his fluffy sweet. Today,
his secretary gives him a marshmallow on the quarter-hour.
Like clockwork, he adds each to the suite of sweets the
corporation he leads provides him. Should s’more be said?
