#813 – The Taco Fiend

The Taco Fiend
I have learned through experimentation, that if not for the lettuce, people can eat tacos indefinitely.

Melvin Munchy’s Dinnertime

It’s Melvin Munchy’s dinnertime,
so get out of his way.
Each loaf of bread, each pea, each lime
is part of his buffet.
He gobbles every bit of food
within his hungry site
until he’s in a fuller mood
(which sometimes takes all night).
He doesn’t chew, just swallows whole…
he shoves it down his throat
and sometimes swallows plates and bowls
and once, a gravy boat.
He makes a mess that’s most severe…
he splats and slops and slurps,
But still you’ll hear, “excuse me, dear”
when Melvin Munchy burps.
