The Moxie Alligator

alligator on golf course 2 may 5

 

The alligator sits on the bank

moxie all around

big beady eyes and open mouth

a warning to all who surround

 

He slips into the water

to cool off and rest this day

beady eyes open

silently waiting for prey

 

The morning sun

shining so bright

a duck comes close

the alligator moves to bite

 

All of the sudden

there is such a clatter

a group of geese land

causing the water to smatter

 

The duck swims away

the alligator loses his prey

there is much noise

as the alligator moves away

 

Back on the bank

enjoying the sun

watching the geese dreaming

while the duck continues to run
