(limerick) Snakes And The Ark - Poem by WES Vogler

The snakes left the ark down the ladders
For relief. (Do they have any bladders?)
Noah smiled, gave a bow:
'Go and multiply now.'
'Oh, we cannot do that, sir, we're adders.'

    WHO is 'saying': (even I like this one please rate) ? ? God? ?

    don't you like ALL that you submit, Wes? ?

    i like this one also. ok, i'll even rate it though it is not my habit to rate, other than with my written comments!
    BUT, you DID say please. SO, i gave it a 9, without reading it again. i subtracted one point for 'my trouble'!

    well, being snakes and having a cloaca, as birds do, i believe, with the 'urine' and 'shit' coming out mixed together somewhat, i DO wonder also: DO snakes have bladders? ? ? ?

    i am now reading an English murder mystery about a murder in the Cotswalds, 'done' using a bag of adders tied over the victim's head! [an agatha raisin mystery]
    as a book store proprietor, retired, perhaps you know of the series? i did not.

    you've had three very fine poets leave comments; now you'll have FOUR! ! !

    p.s. i couldn't help myself: ...............but i DID 'help myself' to this:

    The nitrogenous wastes of reptiles are in the form of ammonia, urea, uric acid, or a combination of these. Crocodilians, snakes, and some lizards do not have a urinary bladder. In chelonians and those lizards with a bladder, it is connected to the cloaca by a short urethra.

    I found my strength, old jokes in limerick form, with this one. Been having a great time ever since.
