Surrender The Sweets!

2 posts in this topic

With Halloween approaching I thought it would be a dandy time to post one of my poems from my new book. It's about Halloween...and a pirate!

Surrender the Sweets!

I’m a thieving little sea dog,

the meanest ever born,

and I demand that you surrender

your stash of candy corn!

I’ll also snatch your Cracker Jack,

your popcorn balls as well,

take away each taffy

and creamy caramel.

I’ll confiscate your crunch bars

and force you to give up

your licorice, your lollipops

and peanut butter cups.

I’ll make off with your Milk Duds,

your bubble gum cigars,

and last I’ll hijack happily

your hoard of Hershey bars.

You can keep the apples

and all that healthy junk.

But hand me all the candy

before your house is sunk!

Be glad it’s only once a year

that I become this vicious brute.

But it’s Halloween and I’m a pirate

so give me all yer loot!

It makes me miss being of trick or treat age. Very nice.
