My Granny Once Made Cookies

by Kelsey White, 14, Allen, Texas

My granny once made cookies
That I thought were really great
My mom got quite suspicious
And she asked how much I ate

I didn't want to seem that full
And looked down at my shoes
But then my new belt buckle broke
I answered, "Just a few,"

"I didn't want to eat too much
But I had not had lunch
Or breakfast or a midnight snack
Or tea, oh me, or brunch,"

"So you can't really blame me mom,
I had to stay alive
I didn't really stuff myself
I just ate thirty-five."
