I would like to eat something maybe quite lovly like you.
I thought once perhaps I might like to eat someone with shoes.
I’ve not tried shoes but they have no meat, so I’ll take these instead.
I would like to nibble on your yummy toes.
Yes, I would like to eat your toes.

Have you ever considered off’ring your arm as a snack?
Something lovely to snack on when you’re thrown in to a sack.
I never thought being in sacks could ever be much fun.
With you near me, I would have something to snack on.
With you there, I could snack on you.

Would you ever have thought I’d think that pumpkins are turnips?
I did not know that orange could be green like lump and skin.
My flesh it’s rotting, pieces falling, and the words they do suck.
But you might like eating this chop, yummy slop slop.
Oh, You might like to eat this chop.

I thought my problem would be really small like perhaps
I needed to dance or sing at a ball
but when I approach’d they just ran away screaming in terror
but you stay’d here and I’m glad of that. Yes, my friend.
I am glad that you decided to stay here with me.

Perhaps you might consider snacking on something for lunch.
I thought perhaps I’d prepare for you bog butter biscuits.
I don’t know what it is but I found it in the swamp out back.
I thought that it looked like a good snack, and that
is why I brought it here to you.
