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.
