The Brownies That Weren't There

by CrystieCookie999

The plate was full of brownies—so fudgy, smudgy, moist.

I spread some plastic wrap on top, chilled overnight by choice.

I really meant to give them to some darling neighbors—true!

But just around the stroke of twelve, I got the chocolate blues.

You always think, “One nibble, and I’ll get right back to sleep.”

How could I know those scrumptious brownies simply wouldn’t keep?

And then I thought, “They might taste better, with a walnut here

on top of all that frosting.” So the brownies brought more cheer

with chunky crunch of walnuts. And I ate up every one!

I wasn’t sticking to my diet—only thought, “How fun

these brownies are with added walnuts," munching with delight.

It’s just a fact—temptation’s back with vengeance each midnight!

But just to reassure you that I’m really not ill-bred,

next day I took some sugar cookies to my friends instead!

I must admit--this is a true story, except it wasn't midnight.
