The Gingerbread House Kit

She bought a gingerbread
house kit, for Christmas
they are in style...
But the making of a
gingerbread house
takes forever-
An awful long while...

Her kids watching
on pins and needles
tried a jellybean or two
And sneaked a morsel
here and there-
Like anxious kids will do

The gingerbread house
it never grew, whatever
made the walls fall?
Before the gingerbread
house was built
The kids ate it all...
