The Ghoul

from Something's Awry by Sterling Witt



My thoughts abound!
What treasure I've found!

You are dead.
I have your head.

Scooping out your lovely skull,
It makes a handsome serving bowl.

Condolences for your loss.
I’ll use your hair as dental floss.

The obit said you were a giver.
Perhaps now I’ll eat your liver.

Search your pockets for loose coins.
I’ll bet you have some tender loins.

I love your lips! So please concede
For these are parts you do not need.

Oh my! Oh my! It’s time for a thigh.
Let’s not forget your beautiful eye!

Another one, just like the other one!

I’ll take the pair now you have none.
Your ear lobes taste like chewing gum!

Yum yum, yum yum,
Yum yum, yum yum!

I’ll drape your innards ‘round my neck,
Call me crazy, but what the heck?

Without a doubt
I’ll eat your snout.

I won't forget your scrumptious heart.
For that’s where love is supposed to start!

And what about your fingers and toes?
I’ll try on your fancy clothes!

Ha Ha, Ha Ha, Ha Ha, Ha Ha,
Ha Ha, Ha Ha, Ha Ha, Ha Ha!

Gallstones taste like Jelly Beans!
Pancreas? Nicer than it seems.

What’s this? Water on the knee?
A delicious beverage just for me!

Slurp! Slurp! A flavorful burp!
Roasted rump, a bump and a lump.

It tastes like cheese!
I must have more! Seconds please!

Of course the teeth are much too hard.
I’m after the roots. They melt like lard!

Oh my dear!
Fluid in the ear?
It tastes like honey…crystal clear!

I don’t mean to be mean,
but I must salt your spleen.

No, no, no, I never waste!
Kidney pie? What a taste!

When all that is left is bone and gristle,
I'll walk down your street, while I sing and whistle.
