Tried to do it quietly
Not appearing too brightly
But tip toe as I did
Could not quiet the lid
Chocolate chip are my best
‘Course I also like the rest
But things are rationed in my home
So when I think I’m all alone. . .
Glass cookie jar just sitting there
Delicious cookies of which I stare
Really, why should anyone care?
I don’t even need a chair.
I lift the lid and start to reach
And I hear my sister’s screech…
“Mom! She’s in the cookies again!”
