Cookie Crumbs


Cookies will save the world.
Cookies have saved the world.

Thirteen of them landed on the moon
They called them the Apollo 13 of cookies

Chocolate Chip built the pyramids
And Macadamia painted the Sistine Chapel

The Nile runs with milk
Because the sun is an Oreo
And the sun is the Nile's favorite
Favorite cookie

Superman defeated no one
Super Sugar Cookie did all that

Double Chocolate Jackie Robinson
Was the first Afro-American to play baseball in the majors

And Oatmeal Raison was the first president
Who couldn't tell a lie

Girl Scouts sell cookies
In an effort to save the world
Because that's what cookies do best

I wish I could write more
But my cookie is gone
I ate it while I wrote this poem
My inspiration is now in my tummy

I think we all could save the world
If the world ran on cookies

But now there's nothing left of mine but
Crumbs

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
