The Marrog!

i can not believe i found this! It's one of my very FAVORITE poems as a child, and today i remembered it so looked it up on Google...and to my utter DELIGHT, i found the words online! Ok, sure, its not what you might expect from my usual fluffy self, but for some reason, this poem was the thing that stuck in my head as one of my most enjoyable childhood memories. i even remember the creepy guys voice reading it out on the Storyteller tape it came on, and can almost hear him saying the eeeeeeeeerrriiieee words in my head as i read it now. Good times, good times. So now i'm sharing it with you. Enjoy :)

The Marrog - Poem by R. C. Scriven

My desk's at the back of the class 
And nobody, nobody knows 
I'm The Marrog from Mars 
With a body of brass 
And seventeen fingers and toes.
Wouldn't they shriek if they knew 
I've three eyes at the back of my head 
And my hair is bright purple 
My nose is deep blue, 
And my teeth are half yellow half red?
My five arms are silver with knives on them sharper than spears. 
I could go back right now if I liked - 
And return in a million light years.
I could gobble them all for
I'm seven foot tall 
And I'm breathing green flames from my ears. 
Wouldn't they yell if they knew
If they guessed that a Marrog was here? 
Ha-ha they haven't a clue - 
Or wouldn't they tremble with fear! 
Look, look a Marrog
They'd all scrum and shout.
The blackboard would fall and the ceiling would crack 
And the teacher would faint I suppose. 
But I grin to myself sitting right at the back 
And Nobody, nobody knows.

Night night my little pretty's!

Love, lust and fairy-star-dust
