The Sheik

A sacker of cities a stalker of prey
A stoker of fires and a stacker of hay
He snickers out loud as he skulks through the day
Shocking the world with his stinking bouquet

Sick as a man can be slick as an eel
A skunk and a snake and a shark and a heel
A sneaky chain-smoker a squeeking old wheel
His shrieks in the dark are so stark and so real

That he slinks in the corner and he sinks out of sight
The speaker has spoken now he's stricken with fright
No succor is given as he strikes up a light
But the spark is elusive and he's stuck for the night
