Worse Than Worms

If there’s one thing worse than a worm in your apple

It’s finding a snake in your cake.

You bite through the pillowy icing (oh bliss!),

But then, what’s this? A whispering hiss.

And as you bite further a horrid surprise:

The glimmering glare of candle-like eyes

And a tongue that cuts through the sponge like a fork,

And you scream and you screech you shriek and you squawk

As the cream-crusted slithering sibilant snake

Starts licking its lips, like you are its cake.

And as the snake writhes and wriggles and squirms

You think that you’d rather eat thousands of worms

Than be gobbled and guzzled like something enticing

All covered with chocolate and sprinkles and icing.

And then with a flick and not stopping to pause

It quickly unhinges its jam-red jaws

And with a big grin and a grind of its gums

It crunches you into a crumple of crumbs.

If there’s one thing worse than a worm in your apple

It’s finding a snake in your cake.
