Do not take sweets from strangers

This one is basically a LARGE part of most childhood memories, a common phrase drummed itno our heads until it's etched into our brains. I hope you enjoy my new poem!♥

If a stranger is just a friend who i've never met,
then how come my brain can not erase or forget,
Do Not Take SweetsOff Strangers.

A person, starts to talk, puppies i'm sureI heard,
but then deep inside i know that i'm scared,
Do Not Take SweetsOff Strangers.

A van pulls up and i hear my name called out,
then a memory, a voice i can hear it shout,
Do Not Take Sweets Off Strangers.

A man who is old pulls me hard,
then inside my jacket he slips a birthday card,
Do Not Take Sweets Off Strangers.

Today's my birthday, Hip Hip Hooray!
That birthday card, sure made my day,
Do Not Take Sweets Off Strangers.

I'm older now, i have kids of my own,
i love and care for them, i provide a home
Do Not Take Sweets Off Strangers.

I used to think my mum was a nark,
but now i understand that reality can be dark,
so listen please, Do Not Take Sweets Off Strangers.
