The Old Croc
To the editor,
I cried for the crocodile that died on Sanibel.
These were real tears, salty as the sea at Sanibel.
She was old and lived alone on Sanibel.
The alligators will shed crocodile tears
As it ended their fears
Of the crocodile that lived on Sanibel.
She was a wonder to behold
Even though she was getting old,
The crocodile that died on Sanibel.
O mate, I guess that was her fate.
