Whoopie Pie Pilferage

by Ross Moyer

“Thieves stole over 100 whoopie pies in Maine”
— Boston Globe

Maine has had a dreadful theft
of very special grub.
One hundred, count ‘em, whoopie pies
were pilfered from a club.

Who consumes so many treats?
Perhaps they’ll fence the cakes.
At least, unlike with stolen art,
the goodies can’t be fakes.
