there was this handsome fellow
and he met this pretty girl
and he found her so enchanting
that it left his heart a-twirl
.
she told him ballroom dancing
wasn't what she chose to do
she didn't like the circus
and she didn't like the zoo
.
she mentioned that she fancied
just a simple picnic spread
with lots of yummy edibles
like fruit and meat and bread
.
he thought this sounded perfect
back to nature for a while
with a pretty girl beside him
with a bright and sunny smile
.
"and we'll invite my ants", she said
his mouth turned upside down
he really didn't want a bunch
of biddies hanging 'round
.
but he found this lass so charming
that he thought he'd take a chance
and he told her "yes indeedy...
we can go pick up your aunts"
.
"oh, we wouldn't have to get them...
they've a farm up in the woods...
right by my favorite picnic grounds...
they'll show up when they should"
.
so he picked her up on sunday
and a luncheon she'd prepared
she guided him into the woods
a banquet, then, was shared
.
he started getting drowsy
all that food and too much wine
he found himself just nodding off
right after they had dined
.
he woke up badly startled
found his body tethered down
and networks of tight roping
left him helpless on the ground
.
the pretty girl looked down at him
a sick grin on her face
"i'm glad you came along with me...
to this enchanted place"
.
"this is where i have my ant farm...
and they're such a hungry brood...
a picnic's not enough for them...
they simply need more food"
.
"and so i doctored up your wine
and when you finally dozed
i tied you to the ground
and sprinkled honey, head to toes"
.
he saw the ants approaching
at a most alarming pace
it resembled a black blanket
that soon covered up his face
