the remedy when all of the treats have been recalled!
24 lines

What is the world coming to??
A recall of THE TREATS!?!?
We can't have proper Halloween
without those tasty eats!!

No trick-or-treat trip is complete
without a candy bag;
and minus all that sticky goo
the dentists' days will lag!

So, we must find a substitute
to keep kids' smiles bright,
or we will see some sad faces
screaming into the night.

We can't just give them school junk;
that wouldn't be much fun!
We'll have to do much more than that
before our work is done!

We'll have to supply COLD, HARD CASH
to make up for the mess
to let them replenish their stash,
eliminate their stress

at dealing with candy recall;
must make it up to them!
And promise that this sort of thing
won't stop Halloween again!!
