A Sad Halloweeny Poem
by Jack


I did not get no tricks or treats.
I am a real sad pup.
I did not get no candy corn.
Or peanut butter cups.

I did not get no Hershey bars,
or M&Ms or Crunch.
I did not get no gummy bears,
Or nothing else to munch.

No Tootsie Rolls, no Milky Way,
Not even bubble gum,
No Skittles, Sweet Tarts, Snickers bars,
I only wanted one!

So if tonight you chance to see,
A puppy at your door,
Make sure you give him something sweet,
Or something off your floor.

I guess I've learned my lesson,
And I have learned it well,
Next year, on Halloweeny night,
The tall guy can go to...


COSTCO and buy some candy just for me!

PS - If your peoples are really really old, they can go here:

and find candy like they ate when they were growing up. It's not the SAME candy. Cause then it would be like 200 years old!

  3. Oh Jack, you have the best sense of humor. Mums had to call dad in here to read your poem. Now they are both rollin around with tears coming out their eyes!

  5. What an excellent and touching poem. We feel your pain because since we do not get trick or treaters, the hu-dad does not even buy candy. Sigh.

  6. Tee-hee... Sam has always come trick or treating with my niece and nephew and he has been lucky to score some dog treats from time to time!

  7. Jack your sad sack disguise doesn't fool us at all!! BUTT we are glad TG was inspired enough by it to write the absolutely fantastic poem. Well done!

    FYI you are too sweet already. If you got any sweeter you'd send all your fans into sugar shock!! If you want to end the night with lots of leftover candy, Mom suggests you make all the kiddies repeat the following:
    'Trick or treat, smell my feet, now give me something sweet to eat'?
    Mom said when she was a child they had a neighbor who said that to everyone who came to his door!!! Mom said she quit going to his house.

    Happy Halloween Jack and TG
    Madi and Mom

  8. I'd like to expand on the above post...the rest of that little rhyme, as I taught it to my first graders:
    Trick or treat, smell my feet.
    Give me something good to eat. Turn me in, turn me out...turn me into saurkraut!

    Happy, Yappy Howl-o-ween!

  10. Poor Jack is right. We are sure the TG will find something in his cabinet to put a smile on your face.

    Happy Howloween!

  11. Or how about this version...

    Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat.
    If you don't, I don't care, I'll pull down your underwear!

    Ask the tall man for a nice slab of beef; you might enjoy it better. :)
    Happy Halloween!

  12. YOu are a good poet, but the last line did not rhyme. I wonder why?

    I stole some candy last night, I would have gotten away with it but I could not hide the foil wrappers in time.

  16. Happy Trick or Treat Day, my very dear friend! We should get together after the Vikings game today and see what kind of trouble we can get into....two smart dudes like us....could be interesting! BTW -- Beth said there still were NO 7-Up bars....I guess they were her favorite when she was a little girl....like a hundred years ago....ha ha!

  17. Sigh, momma says that when she went trick or treating they didn't have any of that stinking snack size crap. Only full sized thank you very much.

    That was a touching poem, Jack. Very well said and I second your sentiments.

  19. Poor, poor Jack. No love, no one thinks of the dog.

    We looked and looked but no unfortunate doggies came to our door tonight. Which is too bad because Shiva had some yummy sardine treats to share. Next year you'll have to come to our house.
