There once was a snake that was quite fond of cake.
His friends thought that he was quite mad!
"Our Roger's a fool.
Did he not learn at school
that for snakes, eating cakes is quite bad?"
But while his snake friends ate rabbits, (their culinary habits
depended on what they could slaughter),
Our Roger was making, and perfectly baking
cakes that would make your mouth water!
Chocolate cakes, lemon cakes, cakes with plump raisins,
Christmas cakes, Easter cakes, cakes for all seasons.
Cakes with pink icing and cakes with plum jelly,
cakes with sweet sprinkles and warm vermicelli.
Cakes that were legendary throughout all the lands-
which is quite an achievement for snakes with no hands!
