Tale of the Cookyopolis

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads:  “Fashion me your words – collaborating for Christmas.  (posted by Gillena)

Your challenge, on this eve of Christmas, is a collaboration. I have set the pace, be it chapter or verse, you continue in the style and number of words you wish ( yes!!! number of words you wish)

If you are adding from my piece, your post must start with my piece and continue into your piece.

COLLABORATING FOR CHRISTMAS
It was the day before Christmas, he was hungry, mighty hungry,
He stalked the pantry, the cupboards were empty,
He didn’t want to sleep, he was too hungry for that
Guess what, no, not guest what? Guess what???

Shhhhhhhh!!!
The last festival he had eaten was, Halloween
No, not the last time he had eaten, the last festival!!!

For he was, The Eater Of Great Joy
But that, could never satisfy him.
Shudder, shudder!!!

He had heard about Santa.
He had heard about A Star.

It sounded too cold
to eat, and too far.
but then . . .

he spotted a sleigh, with
reindeer, and Santa
no, not Santa Ana, Santa Claus.

He crept to the kitchen
where Santa’s snack sat–milk
and cookies–he could go for that.

He swallowed and chewed,
left not a crumb, and thought
he had Santa fooled. 

Mr. Claus looked high and low
to see where his treat did go.
Then, he spotted red and black stripes,
and caught that Cookyopolis, Yikes!
