To Whom It May Concern

Dear Yummy Crunchy Cookie Co:
I’m writing to complain.
I used to love your cookies so!
They were so nice and plain!

But last time I was at the store,
I took some from the shelf,
Then yelled until my lungs were sore—
I was beside myself!

For there upon the package
Was a sticker, bright and gold.
It said you changed my snackage,
“Better Flavor! Extra Bold!”

Oh who asked you to change a thing?!
They’re fine the way they were!
Your cookies need an extra zing
Like fish need extra fur!

Oh change the cookies back, I say,
You cookie-switching bandit!
Bring back the snack of yesterday!
Your customers demand it!

And while you’re at it, please send back
The money that I spent
To buy the “new and better” pack.
Send every single cent!

I had to try them, quite annoyed,
To know that they were bad.
And out of twelve, I just enjoyed
The first ten that I had!

  1. Andy, you always pick topics to which we CAN relate! (-8 Ten out of twelve of us are raising our hands because we, too, sometimes "doth protest too much", about something, it turns out--we LIKE!
