The alligator swims hereAlligator
Hidden in the murk.
This is where the gators,
Beneath the river lurk.

She swims up under floating twigs,
Collects them on her snout
In sizes best for making nests,
Or perching if in doubt.

She gapes her jaws wide open,
Muddy water on her tongue.
When comes a little birdie near,
She grabs it in a lunge.

Man’s the mighty hunter,
Over Earth we rule.
Yet even flat-skulled gators
Hunt for birds with tools.
