NARRATOR: They say it takes a mighty frame
To truly feel great thirst...
And their frames put a whale to shame:
These frames so fit to burst.
And hunger, I have heard it said,
Takes hold when there is no toil.
And Veetan life seems overfed
In labor...and it's spoils.
The Veetan stomach goes for miles
In belly laughs when filled
But there are moments between smiles
When aching hunger builds
And when it comes, it's not a toy,
Not cute, not something dear:
A Veetan eating is not joy
But more like "abject fear."
First human poet to watch a Veetan eat up close The Pilot (Horrified) Nosh (eating)
