Called this because you will quite
frankly ‘schist’ in your pants for you
see, you’ve entered the world of the
Nile Crocodile . . . and they do like
to prey on one’s individualistic style.
Whether it be for a quick swim, or
those brazen enough to skinny dip
But sorry, no Tarzan imposters, not
even Edgar Burroughs, and if you’re a
monkey, it’ll be goodbye Mr. Chimps!
Schistosomiasis has a natural feeding
cycle, it likes to attack from within
With humans as its primary meal
When it grabs a hold of any limb
There is an immediate penetration.
And since it can’t really chew raw
food, it does a thing called the death
roll (hold the butter), don’t expect to
emerge, but rather be submerged,
Tucked away for a midnight meal.
When they’re not eating, they like
to sunbathe, but don’t ever expect
to apply sunscreen—after all, at a
length exceeding twenty-one feet,
It would cost a small fortune.
Of course, there is a remedy to
this infliction—simply approach
it stealthily, insert your hand in its
mouth and rip out its teeth—hey
you may even turn it into luggage!
