The Dangerous Lunch



They said it was safe
They said it was delicious
Crunch, crunch, crunch
Positively malicious

Down to the chewy center
Chewy and moist
It's taste is sour and rotten
Upon me this lunch was foist

My dry heaves turn to wet
An uncontrollable torrent
Intestines wrenched and ruined
The stench is simply abhorrent

Ocular blood vessels bursting
Lungs filling with vomit
Yelp is not to be trusted
I will be avenged...
