Hungry (A Poem)

Written by Michael Haase, illustrated by Phil Rood

Hungry

Hungry

We welcomed him into our home

He had no place to stay

He was cute until we gave him food

Now he will not go away

At first, his appetite was mild

But then he just kept growing

What is the biggest he will get?

There is no way of knowing

He ate everything in the fridge

But still he needed more

We barely squeezed him in our car

To take him to the store

We filled up two whole grocery carts

But that only made him mad

He would not stop his awful screaming

‘Till we bought up all they had

An entire town’s worth of food

Only lasted him a week

And he expanded to fill up our house

From its basement to its peak

He was once a cute and cuddly thing

Until our house he did destroy

But I guess many others lost their home

Trying to feed a baby boy…
