Mutants in the Fridge (228 words)

By Ronda Eden

There are mutants in the fridge and I don’t know what to do

Slimy bits of watermelon and all this yukky goo

Something green and furry, something all gone black

Some chips all dried and shriveled and what looks like a Big Mac!

No one likes to clean the fridge they’d rather let it be

They’re scared to take the lids off things

They’re scared of what they’ll see

The meat’s gone green and slimy and it’s really on the nose

The cheese has grown an overcoat and all the spuds have toes!

The veggies are quite clever, they take care of themselves

They turn themselves to liquid and move to other shelves

And if they’re left there long enough, they head toward the door

Then when you open up the fridge, they ooze onto the floor

Each day they’re growing bigger and changing shape and color

Some are getting brighter and some are getting duller

One day they might turn into, huge gigantic toads

And just keep getting bigger until the fridge explodes!


Then what a job will that be, to clean up that big mess

We’ll have to think of something

We’ll have to move I guess

Just thinking of this makes me tried

And makes me hungry too

But there mutants in the fridge and I don’t know what to do.
