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*.
