Top-Secret Career: Oompa Loompa at Willy Wonka's Factory

Updated on July 26, 2017

Whimsical, happy, spiritual, informative, and/or nonsensical singsong lyrical poems, metaphors, prose, rhymes, and short stories.

It would be so much fun to be an Oompa Loompa in Willy Wonka's Candy Factory! It would seem as if Mr. Wonka's employees would have the liberty of dipping into as many gumdrops, gummy bears, jelly beans, and lollipops as they so pleased! Wouldn't they?

Unsatisfactory Job Performance!



I use to be

a hard-working

Oompa Loompa,

in Willy Wonka's

Factory,


Until the day

that I got fired,

due to my job

performance

being unsatisfactory!



Willy Wonka noticed

that his candy

was disappearing,

at an ever

alarming rate;


Then, when he saw

the chocolate running

down my mouth,

that sort of

sealed my fate.



Yes, I ate some

of Willy Wonka's

precious candy,

but I meant

no lasting harm;


Peculiar how missing

a few gumdrops,

here and there,

made stingy, Mr. Wonka lose

all of his charismatic charm!



Never would I have become

an Oompa Loompa,

if I had known that

the candy would not

have been "all you can eat";


After all, I dyed my skin

permanently green,

anticipating the ongoing

rewards, of shoveling down

my throat, treat after treat!



Now that I am no longer

an Oompa Loompa,

but still fashion

the color of a bright,

fluorescent, green,


A frolicsome elf,

will be my next career move,

since Santa Claus

has lots of candy, (fresh in stock!),

from what I have peeked in,

and clearly seen!

All You Can Eat Candy

Do you think that the hard-working Oompa Loompas should be allowed as much candy as they wish?

See results

Oompa Loompa Song!

Candy!

      Warrior, I do have a sweet tooth, and in fact, seven of them, including four molars. Miraculously, in my whole life, I have only had one cavity. I do, meticulously, brush and floss, though.

      Donuts are scrumptious, too; my favorite are the glazed, chocolate (of course), apple, and custard. I do not eat donuts, though, because they are fattening (unless, I were running marathons to burn off the calories). Well, I might have a donut on rare occasions, actually. But, I prefer Chocolate, and Jujubes! Incidentally, Jujubes are fat-free, so I consider them part of a healthy diet :-) Chocolate is fat-free, too, when combined with certain other food items...oh no, wait...that was in a dream I had last night...lovely dream!

      Sweet Hugs,

      Tamara

      I take it you have a sweet tooth, Tamara. This is a fun read.

      When I was in high school, I worked at Dunkin' Donuts. We could have all the coffee we wanted, but not unlimited donuts. I don't remember how many we were allowed, but it definitely wasn't all you could eat. Frankly, by the time I left that job I couldn't stand the smell of donuts!

      Have you considered removing as many words as possible but retain its meaning and trying it as a slam? Might be an extra dollop of chocolate fun.

      This was so cute, like my pink bunny whom I love dearly. I'm afraid I would eat so much chocolate if I worked in a chocolate factory, I'd put the factory in bankruptcy.
