A Trip To The Candy Store At Stake

Gretel and Hansel were given 
A seven 
But they did not know why 
Since they did not lie 

They decided to be Titans 
At the time of this writing 
Venturing into the forest 
Just like the television commercial cat Morris 

Wanting to compete with Chiefs who had the sweets
In the start blessed their heart
They had ten sweets and were feeling fine 
Then the Chiefs said it was time 

And at the rest break 
The Titans had all they could take 
By the end of the half 
The Titans heard the Chiefs wrath 

What did they say about the seven?” Gretel asked Hansel
Not wanting their big game party to be cancelled 
“We may need those points so we can keep the candy,”  
Was the answer about the advantage that could be handy. 

But the chiefs were mad 
Turning the Titans bad 
In fact, the Titans needed more than seven 
They needed eleven
Titans mounted a come back from the Chiefs attack 
And on the final drive the Titans decided to say goodbye 
As the chiefs watched them leave 
G&H wondered what they will be 
Mining for gold or Wisconsin cheese with a cup of tea. 

The two went home 
And had each other so they were not alone. 
Then the seven was once again giving 
And they said we must make a living 
Without any debate 
They could not wait 
To feel secure, they choose the gold 
Since they needed it when they are old 
Packing the cheese was nothing until the third quarter 
Giving crimson and gold the orders to go to Florida 
“Off we go to another show,” Gretel said 
Knowing the Packer spread was even dead 
It will be the 49ers and the Chiefs in the big game this year 
Giving us all something to cheer. 
Two weeks from now 
If G&H does not have too much candy that will make them a cow
Hopefully, in the end, everyone will take a bow 
When the question be asked and answered before someone singing in a mask
Is it the Chiefs in control of the gold? Should they be so bold?
Or are we going be fools with our money over our leaders being funny 
Time to open the candy store and let G&H in 
Not caring really who is going to win. 

Have fun on the beach during these couple weeks 
Understanding this big game is when America smiles cheek to cheek 
And when the book to this season is closed,
Where should we put our reading nose? 
We find March Madness on the shelf to open
And this gives a whole lot of athletic stoking 
When you are home by the fireside 
Relaxing after the workday when you did try 
Our sports are peaceful games with creative names 
That brings people together so we can all communicate better.
