Cookie Ninja Attack

Stealing creepily, 
creeping stealthily, 
the burgling baker swoops
upon her unsuspecting prey.  
In dead of night she comes,
after feverish obsession with the sweets, 
attacking with a basket full of treats.  
It’s the cookie ninja! How can we resist  
When she brings Russian Tea Cakes, Chocolate Chip,
and Shortbread in her evil fist? 
Rock candy, too, in colors blue and pink…. 
Then sugar cookies
muffins,
oh,
too many now, I think!  
The basket overflowing, upon the table bright 
She leaves, and sweetly melts into the night. 
Her victims, unsuspecting, will arise at dawn, 
And bless, and curse, the sweetness,
and the pounds they will put on.
