Letter To The Sweet Owner - Poem by Della Perry

Dear Tin of Roses Owner,
Hello, just a post it note to say
You shouldn't leave your sweets lying around,
Someone could steal them
So just to prove my point
As I feel it is an important lesson for you to learn
And they say you learn better from experience
I have eaten most of your sweets
I have left you the wrappers as a reminder.
p.s. Only to prove the point mind you!

I will not sign this for obvious reasons!

    here, in Britain, we have an assortment of sweets and chocolates in a tin, that are called 'Roses'. Thanks for comment as usual Brian. x (Report) Reply

    Tin Of Roses must be a britishism or a black countryism.

    you are one hell of a good person to leave the note, and to help
    with a learning experience! !

    [ remind me to not leave my carton of ice cream out when you are around! ! ]
