SHIRLEY MARY BOLYARD, of Kenosha, WI

“If I were a squirrel in a tree,
I’d eat Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, for you see,
They’re crisp and crunchy as they can be,
And I’m going to hide them just for me.”
A poem our mother composed years ago, trying to win a contest sponsored by Kellogg’s. She didn’t, but we still think it was a winner! Eat your heart out, Kellogg’s!
