The Sweet Detective

A poem about some hidden chocolates and candy... and a very motivated kid.
The Sweet Detective

My sneaky, scheming mother

Keeps on hiding all my sweets.

“Dinner must come first,” she says

“And then can come your treats.”

 

I really feel quite angry

As I’ve worked so hard at school.

All I need’s some chocolate

To re-constitute my fuel.

 

My greens – they quite disgust me

For they barely have a taste,

I’d sooner have those cookies

Which my Mother has ‘misplaced’.

 

I search around and soon I find

A case that’s most suspicious

Nestling there without a care

Amongst the pots and dishes.

 

Straight away I pick the lock

And then unclip the strap

Aha! At last! My tasty treasure

Spills into my lap!
