The Rattle-Gator - Poem by Jimi Doyle

an unselfish reptile

with absolute honesty
he warns you he's right here
with purity of purpose
he will bite you, poison you, eat you

swampish love

rolling in the sun
digesting your body
or watching you run

    Just a little violent for me but, I really liked it. Also, at the end, it was very entertaining and funny because I was able to imagine an alligator with a rattle on it. (Report) Reply
