Our Gingerbread House

Our beautiful, sugary, sweet little home,
A cute little cottage we made on our own.
With gingerbread walls and vanilla-whip trim,
and a big chocolate pond with a candy-cane rim.
Chocolate chip fence and the gumdrop garden,
the turtle-shell fudge is beginning to harden.
The puffed sweet-mints are all over the lawn.
But wait! 
Where have all our marshmallows gone?
And where have the lollipop trees gotten to?
And without the toffees, what shall we do?
 
There goes the pond with the candy-cane rim,
And look! What has happened to the vanilla-whip trim?
Gone are the walls, and the light sugar snow.
Where did our lovely gingerbread house go?
