There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed . . .– Penny Parker Klostermann, all rights reserved
Things from my refrigerator.
Albert Allen’s alligator.
Mr. Tobin’s fresh grown squash.
Bacon, sausage, juicy steak,
Pudding, pies, and birthday cake.
The cupboard was bare as he took the last bite,– Mindy Gars Dolandis, all rights reserved
but he still hadn’t sated his big appetite.
He tasted a toaster, which was so delicious,
he ate the appliances, flatware and dishes.
The rest of my house was his luncheon buffet.
He swallowed the sheets and the bed and duvet.
He chewed up the couches, recliners and tables,
computers, TVs and electrical cables.
