Listen Up God

I don't think one of God's brightest ideas
Is storing wax inside our ears.
It looks disgusting and it's hard to get out
And the more it builds up the more we all shout.
Why is it wax and not something sweeter?
A chocolaty filling would be nicer for the eater.
Not that I'm saying I eat it, but if ever I gave it a try
I'd want something far more flavorsome, like blackberry and apple pie,
Like never ending whipped cream or scrumptious gummy bears.
Even vegetables would be better than wax inside our ears.
