1404 – Tricksy Treaters

Tricksy Treaters

I’m not sure which of these is scariest. No, wait… the clown-topus.

Saving My Candy

I planned to be slow with my candy
and eat only one piece a day.
It gathered all night, so it didn’t seem right
to devour it all right away.

I opened a piece and enjoyed it.
I savored its sweetness and zing,
Then safely I stored my delectible hoard
and I vowed not to pilfer a thing.

But then as I lay on the mattress,
the candy kept calling to me:
“Just one little piece wouldn’t make you obese,
and there’s plenty of others, you see…”

I fretted, and fought, but I faltered.
I ate every piece that was there.
I lost the good fight eating candy all night,
but come next year, I’ll save it, I swear.
