Serious

Memorable Inflation

1998

In the murky depths of the distant past
With slobbering jaws agape
There lies a monster with a hungry eye
And a lusty urge to rape
And the smallest thought or slight regret
Is a far too easy prey
For ere that thought is barely born
The monster will carry it away
And with a hundred arms will hold it tight
And gloat with gleaming eyes -
Then with dripping jaws will gobble it up
And spew it out twice the size.
