Children are a favourite meal
For the lion at the zoo,
And the wolf in the adjoining cage
Enjoys small children too.
The crocodile licks his lips
As he sees children pass,
And an awful python waits for them
Quite hidden in the grass.
That hairy monster’s one to watch!
He hides under your bed -
But I mustn't tease, they all prefer
Sweet gooey cakes instead.

It's a pity to have to tell all these creatures the truth: We humans eat more animals and birds than they ever will eat, so we're the ones they have to watch - and we eat the sweet gooey cakes as well. Josie
