The Coffee Cream Thief!


There is a sweet thief on the loose in my office! I had managed to resist finishing a box of coffee creams (my confectionary of choice!) and had left one in case of emergency. Yesterday I remembered the sole remaining sweet, but when I retrieved the box, someone had got there first…

I’m in quite a panic
Today hasn’t been what it may seem
I came across a near-empty box
With a single orphaned coffee cream!

It just sat there pleading,
Would I end it with one bite?
I don’t know where its siblings went
I know it wasn’t the Isle of Wight!

I sat the box down in the corner
On my favourite comfy chair
I popped out for a minute
When I returned it was not there!

I’ve tried to hide the evidence
Of what took place today
The dog has dropped me in it
By choosing the box to take to play!

There’s a coffee-cream-eater on the loose
It was in this area today
I’m either off to the shop in St Neots
