Easter peeps

Two daughters have I who are peepsters:
They think sugared chicks are delicious
And demand that they get them for Easter:
If I fail those two girls can turn vicious!

A basket and bunny alone --
With some jelly beans and chocolate eggs
But no peeps -- would elicit a moan,
And I would get stuck with the dregs

Of those treats while the girls wept and wailed
And demanded I go to the store
To buy yellow peeps: even day-old;
Better yet, buy three packs, maybe four!

But this Easter I've decided to travel
So I won't have to watch them unravel!
