There’s nothing in this world
more sweet than Sarah Jane –
except when she gets hangry,
then her sweet goes down the drain.

See, “Hanger” is an emptiness
bigger than a garage for a plane,
a vacuum in the stomach
that grumble rumbles to the brain.

And when hangriness descends
upon sweet Sarah Jane,
her sugar turns to salt –
and mountains of it, not a grain.

She snarls and barks
like an angry Great Dane,
fuses bulge in her neck
where normally there’d be veins.

But when again her belly’s full
she goes from hangry back to sane,
and to the world returns
sweet little Sarah Jane.
