Tricky

Existence is the sweetest treat
on which creation splurges
but there won’t be much left to eat
if we can’t control our urges

with seven billion souls in need
of food to stuff their flappers
just make sure before you feed
to not discard the wrappers!


***Today on Halloween the 7 billionth person will be brought into this world, better get more candy.***

Yes, 7 billion. And, they tell us,
in the not so distant furture, that number will double. Now we're talking candy!!! Better stock up on candy while there's some left!!
cheers........

Hi all, thanks a lot, it's hard to believe that the last billion only took 12 years to be born, who's having all this sex?
