I AM A MAN EATER


The Sunday Muse #72

Getting my teeth stuck into the latest prompt.

Thank you, Carrie





I AM A MAN EATER

Fear not little girl
You are quite safe with me
I eat just men and boys, you see
So my menu's not got thee.

So do not speak too lowly
And make sure your hair's not short
Or I will get so hungry,
And will kill you just for sport.

For I am just a man eater
And I leave you girls alone
And not eat you piece by piece
And not chew bone by bone.

I may still look ferocious, 
And show a tooth or two.
But if they're inside my muzzle.
They will not you bite or chew.

But if you punch me in the face
Instead of kissing me
I might forget just what I am.
And have you for my tea.

    1. Good point, she may be beastly to him. Had not thought of that. :)

  6. This is very amusing, and would make a fun poem for kids....though real lions tend to eat animals, not humans. Unless they come across an especially vexatious lion-hunter!

    1. Thanks Sherry, yes those dreadful lion hunters perhaps should be fed to hungry lions and tigers. 😊
