Witches' Menu

Witches' Menu

Live lizard, dead lizard
Marinated, fried.
Poached lizard, pickled lizard
Salty lizard hide.

Hot lizard, cold lizard
Lizard over ice.
Baked lizard, boiled lizard
Lizard served with spice.

Sweet lizard, sour lizard
Smoked lizard heart.
Leg of lizard, loin of lizard
Lizard a la carte.

This is such a fun poem, with its bouncy rhythm, rhymes, and dark humor.  Of course, I prefer my lizards live... and want them to stay that way!  Isn't the little guy in the picture up above cute? :)
