Eat or Be Eaten: phagophobia
Throughout his short and hungry life
He dreaded eating. And his wife
Despaired of ever finding food
That possibly would help his mood.
He also feared those carnivores
Who used us for their grocery stores.
So to be eaten? Or to eat?
Both questions knocked him off his feet.
Till one day, SCUBA diving, he
Completely solved the mystery:
He ate some candy from the park,
Dived in, was eaten by a shark.
