Candy Crush

It’s Halloween and I've gorged again
Eating as much as several men
Sickened last year, didn't learn then
After I start I can’t say when

Now what’s left is scattered about
Stomach’s gone from thin to stout
Will take months to work this out
I’ll regret it tomorrow without a doubt

Candy corn, bars and lollipops
Tasted so good I couldn't stop
Ate so much my belly might pop
Exhausted on the couch I flop

I have to admit with some dismay
That Haloween’s still a month away
Adding shame to this display
I have to buy more later today

    It sound like you love to celebrate Halloween with a sweet tooth, no harm in that, just remember to brush, smile, xxx

    Yeah. I don't really eat a lot of candy except around Halloween and Easter when there seems to be too much around the house.
