I'm ever so hungry
You know that it's true
All that I want
Is dalikrab stew
To the ocean I go!
The sounds that you make
When you try to scurry away
Serve to remind me how long it's been since I've eaten today
Back to the house!
The waters warm into the pot you go
As the screaming starts you begin to turn a lovely shade of red
The smells you begin to make go right to my head
With appetite ready and fork in hand
Waiting a second longer is more than I can stand
As much as I want dalikrab stew I decide to just boil you
As your noises diminish and suddenly stop
So does movement inside the pot
Losing as little time as I am able
I bring you to your place of honor at the table
As I close my eyes to take in the smell
Somehow you awaken
And run like hell
You're as quiet as a mouse
And apparently twice as smart
Since I can't find you anywhere in the house
Angry I am
Wherever you are
Whatever you do
Don't ever forget
I'm hunting for you!
