Peter Prim the Fire-Eater

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Peter Prim the fire-eater
ate a propane camping heater,
followed by a butane lighter,
and a barbecue igniter.
Next he drank some gasoline,
and a quart of kerosene
(or perhaps it was a liter;
no one knows for sure but Peter).
Last, to finish off the batch
Peter ate a flaming match.
Bits of Peter Prim, they say,
lit a half a mile away
(or perhaps a kilometer;
who’s to say except for Peter?).
Nothing more was seen of him.
Rest in pieces, Peter Prim.
