there was a large red fan

	there was a large red fan
	which hung from a red pear
	suspended by a string
	which was underneath the stair.
	many peaches in a can
	in the pantry of a king

	little effie happened by
	and spied this tasty treat
	caused a shortness of his breath
	and his heart to quickly beat
	the many fruits he longed to try
	not forseeing his eminent death

	returning to his cardboard box
	hungry after his long ride
	the king met effie and he said
	"forbidden fruit you have now tried"
	then he killed effie with a ceder block
	and found in his skull some gingerbread
