Crocodile Tears

Crying crocodile tears is said
When a person is crying fake
For some selfish motive instead
Of crying for emotion sake.
The saying comes from crocs who do
Really shed tears while they do eat
An unlucky now dead prey who
Is the croc's dinner of raw meat.
Is the croc really so sad that
It has just killed the helpless prey?
Experts don't think the croc is at
Any state of a sadness way.

The croc is prob'ly shedding tears
From more air pressure that appears.
