Four chocolate Easter eggs

     Sitting on a shelf:

A hand came and took one:

     Did you take it for yourself?


Three chocolate Easter eggs:

     Temptation at its best:

Another egg then disappeared:

    Who took it?  Have you guessed?


Two chocolate Easter eggs:

     Look – for certain there are two!

But that little hand has come again

     And snatched it?  Was it you?


One chocolate Easter egg:

     YOU had the other three –

Oh, for certain this last Easter egg

     Must surely be for . . . . . who?  


        ME of course  - - - not YOU!
