It’s Friday morning
bright and early, just gone five past eight
and I’m sitting staring at my breakfast plate.
I bet you wanna know why?
I looked forward to my plate of fruit
along with some red onion root.
But now somehow, I didn’t feel hungry,
let me tell you my story.
I placed my apple in the middle
and my banana at the bottom,
it looked to me like a smiley face
so I put the strawberry eyes in place.
The onion root made very good hair
but I needed ears, so I cut up a pear.
And there it was, my happy face
made up of healthy stuff,
I could hear my tummy growling loudly
and I hoped it was enough!
I started with a strawberry eye
big, fat, Juicy and red
between my teeth I squashed the seeds
they were hard like tiny little beads.
I flicked the green bit in the bin,
and from where I was sitting, it nearly went in!
It was then I heard a funny sound
almost like a giggle
I turned my head and looked around,
but saw nothing there and frowned.
I shrugged and turned to face my plate,
to pick something nice to eat.
After I’d peeled off the Yellow jacket
I found the banana was soft and sweet
and I squished it through my rotten teeth.
I picked up the apple and took a bite
And then placed it back on the plate.
Half way through my second chew
A pair of eyes came into view.
A head popped out, gave me a grin
and then it shot back in again.
I held up my apple and gave it a shake,
and out fell a mini snake!
Well actually, it was a maggot
it was big though,
since it had eaten the inside of my apple out.
‘What are you doing in there?’ I asked
‘Well, it’s coz I’m still hungry’ he said
‘What do you mean, you’re still hungry?’ I said
‘Well I’ve just finished off your loaf of bread,
and I’ve cleaned the jar to the chocolate spread.’
‘I really enjoyed the strawberry pie
I’ve been in the cupboard, you’ve a huge supply’
I told myself it could’ve been worse,
I may have needed to see the nurse.
You know the saying?
What’s worse than seeing a maggot in your apple?
Seeing only half a maggot in your apple!
