“Alligators Everywhere!” by Ellsworth B. Smith
Eating kids without a care
Alligators in the park
Alligators after dark
Chasing golfers, chewing dogs
Crafty though they look like logs
Moving fast with little feet
I see alligators in my sleep!
Alligators looking cool
Alligators in my school
Climbing fences past the guards
Alligators in my yard
Red-tinged mouths and shells of green
Monsters belched out from a dream
Gazing out with glowing eyes
Choosing soon their newest prize
Chomping down with pro-nounced “crunch”
I fear they want me for lunch!
Faces full of evil grins
Killing’s not for them a sin
Reproducing like a virus
TV shows say worse than ISIS!
You can kill them if you like
poison gas or dynamite
Machine guns might not take them out
Nuclear weapons carry clout
Kill them, kill them, on the double!
Turn these creatures into rubble
Cleanse the planet if you dare
Of alligators everywhere.
