I.
I like to give away my candy
because I’m a giver.
Give! Give! Give!
That’s all I do.
Don’t ask why.

II.
Just eat it.
You just better be happy.
I got this candy for you
because I rode on an ambulance last
night.

III.
The reason I don’t eat candy
or chips or stuff like that
is that it gets stuck in your teeth.
The more you eat
the more it gets stuck.

IV.
My mom buys all the candy,
and I stay home
watching television.

V.
If you eat too much licorice
you’re going to grow tall.
Not red, but tall.
Tall with a red head.
If you eat too much chocolate
you turn into a blueberry.

VI.
I’ll tell you who likes candy: Brian.
He stole some from Armani.
A long time ago.
It’s true.

VII.
I don’t care
who eats it.

VIII.
A mixing of
chocolate and fruit
a mixing of
vanilla, chocolate and strawberry
crunchy.

IX.
I’m going to pass the candy
around.
