WHAT did I just eat??
NEW PROMPT: Write a story or poem about accidentally eating the wrong food.


I am a messy eater; look like my food's attacked!
So, when I find a bite dropped in my lap, I call it after-snack.

I found a tender bite of meat after a tasty steak--
but when I bravely ate it up, it was only a fake--

it was a cat treat I had dropped into my lap tonight,
and when I tried to savor it, the taste gave me a fright!

It wasn't beef at all, I found, but tunafish instead!
It was so disgusting to eat, I thought I would be dead!

The moral of this gross tale is to look before you chew,
or else a nasty morsel just might get the best of you!
