Halloween Blood Boil


His blood was boiling –

red in the face and angry.

Who stole my candy?!

  1. This was a ritual in my family as my parents went through my Halloween candy removing candy they deemed possibly unsafe to eat. It was at the ripe old age of 5 that my bargaining and negotiation skills first began to develop.
    I love the simplicity of the poem and the pictures I can conjure up of raw emotions children are willing to display. I’m certain I was one of them!

    • My mom did the same thing with our candiesπŸ˜ƒ

      The poem actually was written with my oldest brother in mind. I used to steal his candies. 😝

      Thanks for going down memory lane with me, Dr. J. and also for your wonderful words😘

  2. After doing the trick-or-treat thing as a kid, I ate a little of the candy and stashed most of it for later days, 2B eaten a little at a time. Really. My mother would soon find and throw out the stash, claiming that it was spoiling. But how many self-respecting microbes would eat the crud in store-bought candy?
