I was wandering around the book section at Value Village the other day
suddenly I saw it!
I couldn’t believe my eyes.
I grabbed it.
Yes it was the book,
with the same green cover,
and that tantalizing red title.
Oh, Five Little Peppers Midway,
you led to my downfall.
And now you’re on sale for 99 cents.
If only you had been on sale for 99 cents so long ago.
There would be no scar on my hand
I would have had a penny left over . . .
