    "Flying Pigsfeet"

    Ann had cooked the pigsfeet, Cat and Alice brought the steaks
    Clare arrived with vegees and Sarah's tasty cakes
    Family members talked and laughed before we took our seat
    The house was filled with smells of food, I couldn't wait to eat

    It was a lavish dinner on the eve of Halloween
    The table was bedecked with food, what a scrumptious scene
    We all sat down and bowed our heads while Pete, he said the grace
    Then everyone began to eat at a wondrous, tasty pace

    The steak was tender, the vegees right, can't wait for cake and pie
    Poured hotsauce on my pigsfeet when something caught my eye
    All plates began to tremble, the food commenced to fling
    Shocked I was by an eerie sight, the pigsfeet sprouted wings

    They hovered over table, the guests were wide-eyed shocked
    Pigsfeet began to chase us like an evil was unlocked
    One divebombed and landed on top of Cat's combed hair
    She dropped her purse and started cursing "Get the hell out there"

    Another raced cross the room colliding on Ray's thigh
    The one I saw came straight at me and barely missed my eye
    The dinner was delicious but no longer was it fun
    The guests had bolted from their chairs and now were on the run

    No sooner had they started, then silence made them STOP !
    They peered around the corner and the pigsfeet all had dropped
    What made them fly's a question. The answer ? not routine.
    But we think Twilight Zone had landed here on Halloween !
    Well that was last night's dinner, but our fears continue on
    'Cause we have breakfast invites and my stomach's not too strong

    Before You eat those peas and corn,toast or slice of beef
    Before you roast those chicken legs, look well at what you eat
    If it turns its head or winks and you miss that single cue
    One day you're eating cherry pie, next day it's eating You !
