The Treats

All the candy’s waiting.
I sniff that chocolate smell;
But Halloween is drifting by
And no one’s rung the bell.

M&M’s and Kit Kats
Will weave their magic spell,
With Krackels, Mr. Goodbars
And those other ones they sell.

I picked out all my favorites;
In that I do excel,
So if no trick-or-treaters come,
It’s really just as well.

    You start the night being kinda skimpy. And then suddenly it's over. But all that candy's not like food. For what's left, you can't feed Rover. Peace. :)

    haha, and I remember taking some of the chocolates from my kids' bags when they were really tiny. After a certain age, they would not let me get away with that!

    A good read Ilene. We had a bag of lollies waiting for the kids, but no one came. That's cause all down our street love money to much to buy lollies for them. Mean barstards lol, a nice read...Peter
