Guest author: Robbie Cheadle – Sir Chocolate and the Candy Dragon

On the day before Halloween,

Sir Chocolate was really busy,

Making candy and chocolate treats,

So fast it would make you dizzy.

*

Edible spiders and caterpillars,

A set of shortbread fingers,

His gingerbread tombstones

with a spicy smell that lingers.

*

His warehouse was completely full

with every kind of treat and snack,

Jelly bones and bloodshot eyeballs,

All piled up high in a stack.

*

That night Sir Chocolate felt weary,

As into bed he did climb,

Only one more day to go,

Until trick or treating time.

*

The next day poor Sir Chocolate

was awakened by a shout,

His warehouse had been raided,

By some mean and thieving lout.

*

Sir Chocolate was devastated,

His hard work was all gone,

Except for one shiny bat wing,

That on the empty floor shone.

*

Sir Chocolate and Lady Sweet

Searched from low to right up high,

Not one single clue was found

So they gave up with a sigh.

The Halloween candy was stolen,

The children’s fun would be spoiled,

It was a very sad thing after

our friends had worked and toiled.

*

Lady Sweet suddenly had an idea,

They could visit the three witches,

Hear No Evil, say No Evil and Do No Evil,

Might know who stole these riches.

*

The witches lived in a forest glade,

Their advice was always right,

Our pair set off to find them,

Soon their hat cottage was in sight.

*

The witches were expecting them,

and sat waiting on their porch,

Their ogre servant was so excited,

His single eye glowed like a torch.

*

The Candy Dragon is the culprit,

He loves to horde candy treasure,

He keeps it hidden in his home,

Where he can gloat over it at leisure.

*

Sir Chocolate set off to find him,

In his hide-away on the Chocolate Hill,

When they finally arrived there,

Everything was quiet and still.

*

The Candy Dragon soon appeared,

Looking more sheepish than scary,

He knew he had been naughty and

of Sir Chocolate’s reaction was leery.

*

Sir Chocolate made a smart suggestion,

As the dragon was really tearful,

He could go trick or treating with the children,

The thought made them both feel cheerful.

*

The Candy Dragon was agreeable,

To returning all the stolen candy,

Instead he would go trick or treating,

With a small girl by the name of Mandy.

*

He would get a collection of sweeties,

And in the processes make a friend,

A great idea of Sir Chocolate who

knows how the rules to bend.

*

The goodies were all brought back,

and each villager got a share,

There was plenty of candy to go round,

The distribution was most fair.

*

Later that night all the children,

Visited each house on every street,

Knocking on doors and getting sweets,

Nothing Halloween’s Eve can beat.

*

The dragon enjoyed himself hugely,

As at each house they all did call,

Sharing candy with his new friends,

Was the nicest thing of all.

 *
