A Lizard’s Life

green lizard 6 april 4

Atop the gutters

with a wistful glance

an eye on a prize

almost in a trance


Blending in

the prize moves fast

in a corrupt environment

no hiding place can last


Running quickly

changing colors with each room

getting closer

prize about to meet its doom


A calculated leap

have been spotted now

prize moving fast

letting out a yowl


Not fast enough

acting with haste

my mouth watering

oh! what a delightful taste


Scurrying back

somethings chasing me now

back into the bushes

safely eating my chow


The life of a lizard

living with incredible speed

enjoying the moment

in whatever color it needs
