#912 – Cake Sneak

Cake Sneak
Ans when you least expect it, he’s gonna come back and drink your milk.


I have seven hundred
and three lousy dollars,
but you have got seven-oh-four.
And though we agreed we
have more than we’ve needed,
I’m jealous that you have one more.

We had chocolate cake
for dessert after dinner,
a treat we don’t have every night.
And while we enjoyed it,
I’m sort-of annoyed that
your sliver contained one more bite.

I stayed up all night
counting hairs on our noggins.
It took me all night I confess
And yes I am tired,
since what I desired
was making sure you had one less.
