Et toi, rampant, que manges-tu? - je dévore le trottinant qui bâfre l’ailé qui croque le flottant. Et toi, flottant, que manges-tu? - j’engloutis le vulveux qui suce le ventru qui mâche le sautillant. Et toi, sautillant, que manges-tu? -je happe le gazouillant qui gobe le bigarré qui égorge le galopant. Est-il bon, chers mangeurs? est-il bon, le goût du sang? Doux, doux, tu ne sauras jamais comme il est doux, herbivore! Wildlife by Norge And you swarming, what are you eating? - I eat the hairy one that digests the pulpy one that gnaws at the creeper. And you crawling, what are you eating? - I devour the trotter, which slurps the winged one, which bites the floater. And you floating, what are you eating? - I swallow the vulva sucking the pot-bellied one chewing the hopping. And you hopper, what are you eating? - I catch the chirp that swallows the variegated who slaughters the galloping. Is it good, dear eaters, is the taste of blood good? - Sweet, sweet! You'll never know how sweet it is, herbivore! Fine.
