A Halloween cauldron sat brimming with treats,
When Taffy claimed HE was the finest of sweets.
Big Jawbreaker shouted, and Candy Corn howled,
The Rock Candy shivered, the Gummy Bears growled.
The Taffy refused to back down from his claim,
Though all of the others did not feel the same.
Then Taffy climbed up and declared in vain voice,
“I come in all colors, I’m the bonbon of choice!”
His pride clearly stopped him from thinking things through.
He screamed when a child picked him up for a chew.
