Pig of a Bear


Gorging guzzling Merry Ted

Scoffs clouds of fluffy coffee.

His palate’s overcome, and tum,

With toffee cream banoffee,

Sharp tangy lemon soufflé, yum,

Eggs perfect, poached and runny,

Toast golden, soaked in butter,

Dripping gently gliding honey.

Unsurprisingly, these favourites

Bring diet into question.

Repeatedly he’s suffering

From bear-burping indigestion.

Are those volcanic rumblings

Down below?  He’s well aware

That unless he clamps his jaws shut,

He’ll be gushing over There*.
