Mappie #53 "Pass The Salt Monster, Please"


The face in the Salt Cellar
Did Come from Tiki lore
Saying Hey Pour me out
Let me get in your hair

The face in the Salt Cellar
A long lost Alchemic Master
Wondering what further magic
Could be had at the after hours

The face in the Salt Cellar
Certainly did seem evil
Glaring at my heart
Like I was already laid out

The face in the Salt Cellar
Looked like Waterford Crystal
Prim and proper like a person who'd
Never scream "pass the salt, ya monster"

The face in the Salt Cellar
Whom only ever wanted to be loved with might
Looking back in anger now he thought in hindsight
He says he's never ever going to fall in love again!
