Jane Blanchard: In Toto

(Regarding the cookies sold
 by Girl Scouts in the USA
 each winter to raise funds)

The problem with Thin Mints, you see,
Is that they cause obesity.

I buy a box, draw out a sleeve,
Consume a few, then fail to leave

The rest for yet another time
Since all should go while in their prime.

Why let a single one get stale?
Thus ends this cautionary tale.

Or not. Sleeve two is opened soon.
So, Thin Mint versus Lorna Doone?

I read fine print for calories.
The latter has far fewer? Please!

But does that really matter now?
Those Scouts have snookered me somehow.
