“ Boys and girls are his favorite lunch,

He thinks toes are tasty

Hair is like honey

And nose just so nice to nibble.”

 

They say anything to keep children away

From my den deep in the woods

Where I eat luscious leaves,

Bright berries, sour seeds

And fresh fruits from the trificka tree.

 

I just can’t believe they think I eat kids,

Why would I want to do that?

I’d love to meet one

For a chinwag and chat-

A friend for a lonely old troll.

 

Stay right away from the forest,” they say;

“The troll’s so ugly you’d faint.

Just leave him alone

Some things don’t deserve to be loud.”
