My taniwha is Megabyte,
His manners are quite rare.
He has enormous hairy hands,
Five bloodshot eyes, ten yellow fangs,
But likes to dine with candles and
A table and a chair.
When he gobbles up his victims,
I’m happy to report,
He holds a napkin in his tail,
To wipe his tusks and claws and scales;
He clears his plate and never fails
To use a knife and fork!
