The Butcher, The Baker, and the Candlestick Maker (NAPOWRIMO 2015 #13)

The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker

went for a jog one winter morn

in the silver woods by the banks,

the banks of the river by the bank.

and the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker

skipped into the forest

with nary a picnic basket

but some feather boas:

and the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker

built a blaze and danced a tune

of crickets and lizards and grasshoppers too;

and even bears from around the cave

danced with baker

and shared a joint with the butcher

and on the sweet soft grass

made love to the candlestick maker.
