Charles M. Moore

Rookie (1953 june / Glasgow Scotland.)

Food for thought

They say in Egypt lived a man
who dined on cheese and pickled ham
and once he ate a caravan
including horse and camel

He ate all night and ate all day
and all the people ran away
fearing they would soon be pray
to masticating ecstasy

He went down to the market cross
consuming all he came across
and then when finished at a loss
he ate himself with apple sauce.
