    ~ This year I lost my halloween job of giving out candy because of what happened last year. This is that story -

    I was so good
    All daylong
    Not one piece of candy
    Not one sweet
    But a mistake was made
    Allowing me to give out
    The Halloween treats

    So jealous of the children
    Looking into their bags
    All that good candy
    Soon this task became a drag
    After just ten minutes
    I lost control
    I traded two snack-sized bags of chips
    For a giant Tootsie Roll

    So glad an adult was giving them convo
    They gladly shared their goodies with me
    It didn’t take much
    Soon I had enough candy
    To trade for a Nestle’s Crunch
    This trading thing was fun
    Kids really know their candy
    I also learned much from my newfound friends
    Goobers don’t get as much
    As a bag of M & M’s

    Some parents thought the whole thing funny
    I was dead serious
    When I gave up a Twix bar
    For a chocolate covered bunny
    When busted by my daughter
    Told I was going to hell
    So I spent the rest of the evening
    Trading candy on the DL

    I promised myself
    I’d give it all back
    This sweet tooth thing has cost me my mind
    But a small box of rasinetts is so hard to find
    My daughter can take it to a Halloween party
    She can have everything
    Except the rasinettes and smarties
    Some things are just sacred

    BE

    TOO CUTE!

    You go from philosopher to humorist faster than my Protege goes to 55mph, and I must say , this was just to cute I couldn't pass it up! Even though I think Halloween is a pagan holiday, I found your lil word play fabulously amusing! :D
