Naked Nonsense: Guundie’s Ridiculous Rhymes
The Edible Swarm
By my door are massive trees,
swinging in a storm,
dropping lots of peas –
a gigantic swarm.
It comes in – the peas have keys –
and I squash them just like fleas,
get them on the stove to warm,
put them on a plate,
and eat dinner, thanks to fate!
