Bottled Up

I'm the Cookie Monster.
I lived inside a jar,
till someone took the lid off -
and well, now, there you are!
Or rather,  that's where I am -
all free and on the loose.
But freedom, I've discovered,
is not a lot of use
when you haven't got a body,
let alone a pair of feet,
and now the jar is empty,
I've nothing left to eat!

  6. Ah yes! But consider, if your Cookie Monster had stayed put, someone might have eaten him/her/it.

    1. They are very tasty biscuits, made by McVities, and best when coated on one side in plain, dark chocolate! Little Nell will no doubt confirm this. :)

    1. It won't help much unless they use the links I left in my comment on your post HERE !
      Methinks a little homework on linking is needed. Hehehe!
