Tagalong (not a scripted sonnet)

Oh, dear, sweet Tagalong!
These Girl Scouts have ruined me.
This love for food can be so wrong.
We’ll hide in the pantry, no one can see.

Oh, dear, sweet Tagalong!
What? Only two per serving?
Why, yes, Thin Mint, you too can tag along.
There’s really no need for longing.

Oh, Tagalong, our love ends in sorrow!
For your future is so short-lived.
Gone today, still gone tomorrow.
A new box! These moments can be relived.

Tagalong, I eat to live and live to eat…you.
That you tag along with me is my due.
