A is for Alligator
Snip, snap goes the alligator jaw
Crunch, chomp, as he gobbles up more.
Today we meet Henry - a croc quite like no other,
Not his Mum, not his Dad, his Sister or Brother.
For Henry liked only the finest of things,
Delectable foods, made for alligator kings.
Sautéed snails and fried fish with spiced rice...
“Delicious, scrumptious - it’s all rather nice.”
But, the food was so tempting, “one more, quick taste”
That Henry couldn’t let even one bite go to waste
So he ate and, he ate and, and he ate... and he ate
Until one day he reached an incredible weight
Up floated Henry, this enormous balloon,
So high, that he landed on top of the moon
But,Henry was happy, ecstatic in fact
For a spoon and a fork was all he had packed.
And, as you may know, the moons made a cheese
And our giant gator friend was really quite pleased!
