It smelled of gloom and doom
I smelled it right away that day
When I walked in the room
It was a very horrid scent
It smelled of gloom and doom

I looked around expectantly
Preparing for the worst
Then I spied what was the cause
I uttered a soft curse

She sat there looking innocent
Wrapped in the scent of death
Her bowl was still in front of her
And she had Cheerios breath

I should have known it right away
It was her morning fare
She eats a heaping bowl of them
Without a single care

I like the taste of Cheerios
But I can tell you this
That scent’s the surest way I know
To quell a morning kiss

‘Cause anyone who has a nose
Will tell you that they stink
She looked at me and gave a smile
Then gave me a quick wink

“The only cure to beat the smell
Is if you eat them too”
So I sat down and poured a bowl
Well, what else could I do?
