Macaroon Mary: A True Story

Macaroon Mary

Ate cookies EVERYDAY

She’d hang around the bakery

In place of fun and play

She never tried a carrot

Won’t even LOOK at fish

The taste of something sugary

Was her favorite dish

Mary was not chubby

As you’d think she’d be

She had a love for soccer

Would watch it on TV

One day she saw a flyer

Come join a soccer team

Mary got excited ’bout

Fulfillment of her dream

She showed up at practice

Ran out of gusto soon

Didn’t understand this

Pulled out a macaroon

The treat made her feel jumpy

But when her moment came

Her energy went flat

Her spirit did the same

The coach told Droopy Mary

She needed better fuel

Recommended vegetables

And running after school

Smart Mary took his wisdom

The Bakery was shut down

She’s known as Mighty Mary now

Best soccer kid in town

Don’t want to overwhelm you

More news beyond belief

Mary has no cavities

In ANY of her teeth!


My granddaughter inspired this when she went to soccer practice without eating a good breakfast and just didn’t feel up to playing!


I love a well told story. If it makes me laugh, all the better.
