Halloween Treats

Kids excited

Jumping up and down

Mask and gowns are bought

Ready to hit the town


Once a year it comes

A time to eat the sweets

Mom and Dad don’t say a word

They let me eat my treats


But two months later

A yell from little Sue

A trip to the family dentist

Showed a little hole.


Now Mommy says

Never again

Only fruits and veggies

Junk in the can.


So here it is

Trick-or-treat once more

Mommy forgot

And I’m out the door.


House to house

Filling up my sack

Excitement rises

As I return back.


Mommy is waiting

She is standing at the door

I told you little Sue

No junk, no more.
