Interlude: New Monster

The New Monster

The new monster takes some adjustment;

It thrives on fresh pine nuts and gin.

Its scales are inclined to encrustment,

But it eats all the waste in the bin.

Six heads may seem, yes, excessive —

And dangerous to some passers-by —

A creature nasty and brusque and aggressive,

But it’s certain to catch every eye!
