What does an average monster need to prove he can be scary?
Just the right ingredients in a recipe for fright!
Marcel was a monster of medium size
With crotchety horns and googly eyes
Like any good monster, he worked every night
Giving the neighbourhood children a fright.
But poor Marcel is simply not scary. In fact, he''s hopeless at
his job. After he trudges home from work each night, he turns to
his true love . . . cooking.
He made earthworm spaghetti and cold cactus pies
With some smelly-sock soup and a cockroach surprise
There were rotten bananas on apple-core cake
And a dollop of sludge on a beetle-shell bake.
One night, when Marcel leaves his lunchbox out, a little kid
looks inside . . . and is terrified! So Marcel gives up freelance
frightening, and opens a restaurant where he can scare customers
with his cooking instead.
