Chow Time

saber tooth eats a caveman / caveman eats a saber tooth

no silverware, no napkins / no ketchup, how uncouth

chow time here on planet earth / you want a table or a booth?

Noah barbecues burgers / on the poop-deck of his ark

seems there was this extra cow / he didn’t wanna throw to the sharks

two pit-bulls are jumping around / bark bark bark bark bark

rats dodge New York traffic / to go nibble on King Kong

who the hell brought that monkey to town? / they shoulda known things would go wrong

all the brave young pilots / who shot King off the Empire State

gather at a diner down by the airport / and order some special blue plates

from the waitress Kate

little fish, big fish, bigger fish / here comes a killer whale

meanwhile, in that French restaurant / people are munching snails

old Dick Cheney’s out in the woods / trying to shoot a quail

look out

now your dung-beetle, there’s a little creature / who really got a bad deal

one can only imagine / the injustice he must feel

the other day I read a short story / while chugging some Parrot Bay

this guy had to eat off his own arms and legs / he was a Stephen King castaway

I cancelled my cruise today

we have a cat who’s a vegan / she only eats cat-nip

she listens to Charlie Parker / that cat’s pretty hip

I like to sit with my popcorn / and watch her do back-flips

in some less-fortunate countries / some people will eat cats

my cat’s always so loaded / she ain’t too worried about that

meanwhile back in New York City / a wino kicks a rat
