The beautiful sparrow
Perched singing her songs
Took flight
Captured a lovely butterfly
Just happening by, in mid air
Returned to her nest
A cat stealthily chased the bird
Over power it
He feast upom his prey
The careless homeless cat
Strayed too close to the lake
An alligator attacked
Grasped him
By the scruff of his neck
Made a satisfying meal
Swallowing him whole
A knowledgeable hunter
Storked the gator
Shot him behind the head
Made handsome throphy boots
Of him and some
One day the hunter
Fell asleep
An escaped killer
Stole his gator boots
Flew the scene
The killer was caught
In due time it seemed
Sentenced to death
On his final day
He was straped
To an electric chair
Near his bed
With brand new leather straps
Made from that gators back.
