Alligator Hole In One

alligator on golf course 2 may 5

The alligator lies in the sun

with deep brown eyes

relaxing on the golf course

watching the golf balls fly by


One golfer hits a ball

a little too close

totally unaware

of an alligator’s boast


He goes to retrieve the ball

the alligator’s head in the air

thinking he can hit the alligator

with a snare


The alligator sees the golfer

swishes his tail up high

hitting the lost ball

in the air going wide


The golf ball flies through the air

for a total hole in one

The alligator rests his head

again in the sun
