1708 – Monstrous Manners

Monstrous Manners
Based on actual, daily events at my house.

Eat with Pete

Nobody wants to eat with Pete
who dines on plates of pickled feet.

Nobody wants to chew with Sue,
who slurps a stinky scarab stew.

Nobody wants to feast with Trish
with fried fillets of fetid fish.

Nobody wants to sit with Sid
whose lunch includes a living squid.

That’s how it happens normally,
and still, nobody eats with me.
My fare, you’ll find, is finer food,
but no-one’s even half as rude.
