little things were going missing

had an alligator
raised him from a pup
didn’t realize til later
he was eating
some things up
little things
were going missing
little johnny,
little jen,

had a midget
for an uncle…
he ain’t coming
up again.
had an alligator
used to be my buddy
’til the wifey
put her foot down
and it came up bloody.
