Haiku Friday: My Trick-or-Treat Manifesto
Just say no to the
“value” bag. Give out chocolate
Or turn off your light.
You can keep these, too:
Tootsie Rolls, Starbursts, Milk Duds,
And licorice. Blech!
Be generous with
The little kids. Be stingy
with everyone else.
Count the number of
Snow Whites you see. Get to 10,
Have candy. Or beer.
Ration the kids’ stock.
Then help yourself at bedtime.
I won’t tell. Promise.
What are your trick-or-treating rules? What are your kids going to be? And ’fess up, did you buy the “value bag” or the good stuff??
