A fronte praecipitium a tergo lupi. (In front of you, a precipice. Behind you, wolves.)

Poetry Month ABC's

I planned on doing a poem a day like the last two Aprils. But this year I suddenly got horrendously busy at the beginning of April, so I figure I'll do two a day until I get caught up. Also, they're going to be alphabetical. So here it goes:

A. Alligators and Other Arresting Annoyances
All alligators arrived at eight
After arranging for a plate
Of apples, mangoes and a dog
A couple okra and a frog.

They dined on Mentos, quince, and tripe
And shot some skeet and hunted snipe.
Their golf game was a huge success,
Although the greens were left a mess.

They partied to the night's wee hours
Roller skating, taking showers.
Someone notified police
All gators paid a quid apiece.

The aggravated reptiles cried,
"We will not be pacified!
We want our fun to be complete
With ample food and play replete!"

The p'licemen frowned and pointed out.
The alligators turned, all were a-pout.
Then, just like that, they went away,
At the weary start of day.

 Fluffy balls
All furry cuteness 
Huddled here

Until they scamper
Bunny scat

  1. The first poem sounds like it would make a fun children's book if you got a good illustrator.
