A monster ate our Granny up
Then drank some beer from Granny’s cup.
We cried, we trembled and we shook
And looked for reasons in a book.
We told the Police and doctors too,
But they all said: “What can we do?”
And whilst our family were perplexed,
The monster pounced on Granddad next.
Of course the family were distraught,
But there was something that we thought:
“Why eat old people like those two
Instead of sweet young ones like you?”
