Sugar Addiction Awareness Day

Today on the eve of Halloween is Sugar Addiction Awareness Day
To alert us to the dangers from sugar like obesity and diabetes that will come our way
This holiday wins the prize for the holiday timing closest to the mark
On the eve of the day when ghosts and goblins in search of candy go out into the dark
But sadly after filling their bags with all number of candy treats
Yet not sated after days of too much candy to eat
Another sugar addiction seed is sprouted to join others already in the brain
To cause any chance to fight obesity or diabetes to go down the drain
And parents of young toddlers to cope with the sugar highs
Scratching their heads to wonder why we cannot on Halloween find
More non sugared treats not forcing them to endure the chaos while they unwind
The founders of this holiday must keep up the good work
To try to slow down the sugar demons running berserk
