Derek and the Gator (PPP)

Another picture in our ongoing poetry project. I drew the picture but my wife took the picture in the background.

Derek and the Gator

Sometimes it can be quite strange
when meeting an alligator on the beach
its hard to know exactly what to say
or what conclusion the meeting will reach
Will the gator attempt to be friends
or are his goals something far more suspect
is the gator putting his hand out to be kind
or is he just getting close so he can bite your neck

All I can say is Derek maybe you should have gone to the mountains instead
You may end up with a new friend or you may end up without your head

So we’re going to start posting some pictures that tell a little story with a poem.  Let us know what you think.  The best ones are going to end up in a book (the book will definitely have a better title than Picklesoda Poetry Project).  And of course it is understood at Picklesoda that all poems rhyme (we are very close minded that way unless you don’t think we should be).  So here’s the first one.

Picklesoda Poetry Project (or some other better name)

Elephant’s love chocolate

This elephant with the sinister look on her face
is not contemplating robbery or cheating in a race
no her thoughts are less sinister by far
she just doesn’t want to share her candy bar
