Egg Hunt Yo'






The night before Easter mom does her work
Stuffing 55 plastic eggs is a heck of a lot of work
The 99 cent store provided the fun
After all this candy was consumed the kids would weigh a metric ton









The very next morning the kids were all gathered
Dressed in cute dresses, gel in their hair was slathered
I yelled out “GOOOOOO” and sent them out for the eggs
The kids were running rampant like they had been drinking from a keg









Each egg found in the grass was promptly plucked
And out of it the chocolate candy was shucked
It was all over their faces as each child smiled
The sugar was spreading and driving them wild









And that when the parents realized their fault
For the next few hours there would be a sugar assault
The couch was a victim to thick chocolate layer
For the carpet to survive would take some great prayer









So we decided to do what all parents would do
Cracked open the red, and hit up the booze (moderately of course!)
Grilled up the burgers & busted out the cake
In 4 hours time the loss of sugar will put on the kids hydraulic brakes









And that is what happened just a little time later
The lack of sugar hit them, just like a freighter
Piled them into bed, and read them a story
Dinner tonight was chocolate but tomorrow is chicken cacciatore.
