Child’s Birthday Wish

I’d like to bake a chocolate cake

with strange and yukky things;

long spiders’ legs and a slippery snake

and beautiful butterflies’ wings.


Inside would be some elephant ears

and a dozen donkey’s tails

then a cup or two of crocodile tears

and sixteen slimy snails.


In the middle I’d spread some jackfruit jam

mixed with piercing eagles’ eyes

and some old and mouldy strips of ham

will add to your surprise.


So when mum puts this in your dish

you’ll take a bite then spew;

just think about this birthday wish,

on a day that’s just for you.
