Scout cookie time (31-HP Day 3)

Ding dong! Ding dong! Ding dong!
Someone at the door.
Ding dong! Ding dong! Ding dong!
Funny, the dog is quiet,
Ding dong! Ding dong! Ding dong!
And the cat is not hiding.
Ding dong! Ding dong! Ding dong!
"Scout cookie time!"
Really do not want any.
"We have Fudge Frogs..."
"They are my favorite."
"...Eye of Newt..."
"Don't forget to tell him what we learn in scouting."
"No need for you to learn--your brother already a frog."
"...Hazel Dragon..."
When did the Girl Scouts start dressing in black?
"...and we now accept cash, checks, and credit cards..."
"Not his check--his bank account is low."
"...oh yes, good choice. Your wife loves the Baby Hearts..."
"She was a Scout in my mom's grove."
"...here you go. Have a nice Samhain."
Who was it?
Girl Scouts selling cookies.
Honey, when did the Scouts start carrying brooms?

Fun poem! I'm suddenly reminded of those "every flavor" beans from Harry Potter. Alas, earwax. ;)

That is really good. I love it. My girls are just starting up with girl scouts. It should be interesting.
