SNAP! SLURP! CRASH! 

SNAP! SLURP! CRASH!

So like twigs they are

How easy they snap

So meaningless 

When they are in pieces

To think

Something so weak

Needs to be strong

To protect their precious organs

To hold them up

But they're weak

All flesh

And blood

Soft

Helpless

Easy to bite

They should be covered in bones

If they don't want to let me in

But they're not

It's mostly skin

And soft, sweet, juicy muscles

Perfect for eating

Bones are no good for protecting

So thin

So light

And easy to break

But they are good for snapping

Cracking

And crunching

Sure the muscles are nice

And the blood

And skin

But it's the bones I like best

Especially what's within
