When Through the Keyhold He did Peep

When through the keyhole he did peep, he saw his parents on their bed. He thought that they would be asleep. But something else he saw instead. He thought they’d heard him at the door when through the keyhole he did peep. He ran away in silence, for he feared to be in trouble deep. He’d seen them lying with a heap of snacks he’d never known about. When through the keyhole he did peep, at last their secret he found out! “No chips or cookies given me,” their young son thought, “they are so cheap!” What awesome junk food he could see when through the keyhole he did peep.

Turnabout is fair play -- maybe he should hoard the pizza when the delivery guy comes while his parents are away.
