Tim Flim and the Dairy King

Young Tim Flim and his Mother were quite a sad pair
with a relationship like no other they lived in despair

when Tim Flim was born his Father had died
from that day forth his Mother was quiet

they never laughed and they never joked
Tim Flim and his Mother, they never even spoke

one day while walking Tim Flim heard a noise
a rustle in the bushes, a faint gruff voice

“Who’s in there?” Tim shouted to the direction it came
“come out her now or I’ll lose my tame!”

“It is i! the Dairy King!” and indeed it was he
“the Emperor of éclairs and the Chief of cheese!”

“What is a Dairy King and where do you come from?”

“I rule the whole world, the world of cream buns.”

“I think you’re lying!” retorted Tim Flim

“Oh you will see, you’ll see” said the King

“just come over here and shout these four words
I’m not from this world so if I try, it won’t work,

are you listening young boy, it has to be right
accedo effloresca terra LACTITE!”

so Tim Flim threw his head back and screamed out in spite

with a woosh and a whiz they were hurled through the sky
across space and dimensions and stars and oh my…

they landed so hard that the cream on the ground
was hurled up and across and all around

the Dairy King was laughing as Tim Flim never heard
he grew scared and worried, where was this world?

he was grabbed by the arms and shackled and more
the five guards made of chocolate had done this before

the King, he still laughed and rejoiced at his work
a new slave to build, to grovel and serve

that night at home Tim Flims mother cooked ham
and when she had finished she wanted cake and jam

she opened the fridge and from the bottle of milk
a faint sweet voice shouted “Mother help me, come quick!”

Tim Flims Mother scooped up the cake and closed the fridge door
she knew what she heard and she chose to ignore

she decided to see it as destiny, as fate
that Tim Flim and his Father should end up the same.
