I’m not saying
that Triffids don’t like scones;
but, I’m not in a position
to say whether like them,
or whether they don’t.
They might never have eaten one,
stopping short at a Chelsea Bun
or an Eclair.
There seem to have been
no studies carried out
(by the people who carry out studies of this kind)
to find out
whether Triffids are ‘thumbs up’
or ‘thumbs down’
when it comes to scones;
and, if it happens
that it’s ‘thumbs up’,
does a Triffid do ‘Jam First!’
or are they just horrible man-eating plant-based things
as we suspected from the start?
