Carl's Soup


I saw a famous man eating soup.
I say he was lifting a fat broth
Into his mouth with a spoon.
His name was in the newspapers that day
Spelled out in tall black headlines
And thousands of people were talking about him.

When I saw him,

He sat bending his head over a plate
Putting soup in his mouth with a spoon.
