The Biscuit Man

Formed in a dark kitchen
by an angry chef -
beware of the biscuit man
with his pudgy corners
and ginger smile.

His yellow eyes are milky
like a clouded night sky.
He's killed a three-and-a-half
year old with a kick to the head,
and he'll kill you too
with his wish to be dead.

Take care of the child
with the cuckoo mother
who throws her own baby
out of the nest-
biscuit man's prey
is every child.

If you let him in bed
there'll be crumbs ... crumbs,
slam him back in the oven
and let him burn.
