I had a dream late last night,
I must admit it gave me a fright,
It wasn't about monsters or things that are scary,
It was about the baker Mary Berry,
I could see she was baking a very large bun.
I wanted to join in, it looked like lots of fun,
But when I went over to look at the cake,
I could see in the bowl there was a snake!
Mary mixed away and didn't think it was funny,
She said to me, 'Doesn't this look yummy?'
Just as she asked me to have a taste,
I ran away quickly without haste,
I woke up suddenly, glad to be awake,
There's one more thing, for sure I'll never ever bake!
