King For A Day

I'm resting here quite regally

The feature of the table

Surrounded by potatoes that

I'd taste if I were able.

My subjects, scrubbed and beaming,

Circle round the royal platter

They seem to be adoring me

But something is the matter.

See me basking in the candlelight

My skin so nicely tanned

The reason for this treatment

I do not understand.

While I'd love to peck that dish of corn

And gobble down a berry

I find this jolly atmosphere

To be a trifle scary.

These human creatures were my friends

They filled me up with bread

But now I have suspicions that

They're cannibals instead!
