Bambi Came To Dinner

Bambi Came To Dinner

Bambi came to dinner
ate all the fresh flowers
nibbled on the tablecloth.

Alice drank from a bottle
became too small to sit at the table
all she wanted was to fit into that dress.

Micky Mouse showed up late
kept dancing with the food
he was acting goofy.

The roast beast sidled up to me
asking what cut I wanted to eat
I told him he was too rare for me.

I never figured out who the host was
I didn’t get a bite to eat
afraid the food would bite me back.
