A family battles over candy corn—double acrostic.
Cindy Ann came up with a bold tactic,
announcing, “I despise candy corn!” A
new approach, one to agitate her clan

opined, “Corn is sure great! “ as his dad, so
red in countenance with ire, puffed air,
nearly fainting from lack of oxygen.

“Attention! I’m going to the plaza—“
“Ready yourselves, candy corn’s a comer!”
So, Annabel mused, Cindy’s tactic works.
