Grandma's Cookie Jar - Poem by Leaking Pen
I wish I could make you laugh, do you remember
When children purposely let go of a fart?
They giggled like the world had no end.
Laughter free from guilt; pure and innocent,
Or when they snuck behind grandma sleeping like a rock
And entangled their hands inside her precious cookie jar
And laughed and laughed as if time is one big joke,
And crumbled each cookie- delight in the theft-
I wonder which act gave them the greatest joy?
To gobble each crumble or the mischievous theft,
Reason to believe the second trumped the first.
Hark me back to childhood year's make-believe,
When the world was as big as grandma's cookie jar
Yet small enough to explore from book to book.
