So, Mr. Manson, Tell Me More About Angelica

I do not know about angelica.
Is it a she or an it. My rocky road
Traverses rhyme and onomatopea.

"Swish! Bang! and Boom!" are onomatopea.
I think that angel-lore is called "angelica."
I ponder this while scooping Rocky Road.

Were it not for the coconut, I'd love Rocky Road.
I'd lick my cone with noisy onomatopea,
And muse on nights spent with Angelica.
