V. Ode Upon an Alligator

Katie and Eric 025

Please don’t pet the alligator,
don’t throw rocks and aggravate her.
With her crooked, toothy smile,
She can chase your for a mile.
And DON’T go riding on her back,
Or she may have you for a snack.
On this, your life may just depend,
The alligator ain’t your friend.
