Neat little critters, eatin' bugs and all.

Today I’m seeing

Blue I think

It’s Missouri’s Famous

Blue tailed skink

 

They say it’s poisonous

That tail of blue

But just between me and you

I happen to know that it’s not true

Not quite sure what to say about this one, Patrick. My first thought was that the skink is the idiot in question that survived.
