Beth Eden settlement house
has its own troop of Girl Scouts.

The girls take part in
the Girl Scout Cookie program.

Felix and Wawa
get wind of the night
when the cookies
are to be distributed
for sale to the community.

They are lurking around
outside the settlement house.

“Wawa, those cookies are doomed.”

“Yeah, they won’t last the night.”

What they don’t seem to remember
is that settlement house girls
are tough as nails.  

They’re every bit
as tough as Felix and Wawa.

Sally walks out
the settlement house door
with her boxes of
“Thin Mints”,
“Trefoils”,
and “Tagalongs”.

The boys attack her.  
They try and wrestle
the cookies out of her arms.  

Sally smacks Felix up-side the head,
and kicks Wawa you know where.

Felix and Wawa
spend another night
cookie-less and hungry.

It’s a dog eat dog in the hood.
They’re hurting.

When we were young, we didn't know what we were doing.
sad. sad.

Thank you

Secondhanddreampoet,

Given the immense expanse of the time space continuum, what you say is very possibly true.

Thanks for liking this one, everyone says hello.

Passing Shadows,

Ah, I'm afraid Felix cannot be much of help with the Girl Scout Cookies.  Despite their valiant efforts, he and Wawa were unable get them away from Sally.  

As you know, Sally is selling them, and she wants an arm and a leg.

They are good, aren’t they?

Thanks for reading and commenting.

It's a little ways there from here in Philly.
