The Unlikely Literary Success of Carmen Matilda Manila’s Chinchilla


The Unlikely Literary Success of Carmen Matilda Manila’s Chinchilla

Carmen Matilda Manila’s chinchilla

Was as big as a very small mountain gorilla

When they’d go for a walk, townsfolk scattered and screamed

The mayor declared,  “It should be guillotined!”

The preacher he thought the mayor too drastic

The butcher stepped forward to wrap it in plastic

Then Carmen Matilda Manila’s chinchilla 

Ran away to the hills to write a novella

It starred all the townsfolk and how they should die

And included instructions for Hemlock Cream pie

After that it was merely a matter of time

Til the townsfolk were found in positions supine

Now Carmen Matilda Manila’s chinchilla

Is writing a sequel, it’s called, “Salmonella”
