A Friendly Smile

A friendly smile.
The maiden sobbed and walked along. 
A friendly smile;
The toothy grinning crocodile
said, ‘Sit by me, tell me what’s wrong.’
He ate her whole, spit out her thong.
A friendly smile…

For Debs’ Rondolet ‘Nature’ contest
(non PM at the moment, I think)

    You can look your Member area and find out when your membership ends..They extended it several times bescause of problems..Great work..Got a chuckle...Well some say grits are Girls Raised In The South..However, we eat corn that has been done some way to remove the husk and then dried and ground..We then buy it at the grocer...If you are lucky cook them right, they make a great mild or blan flavored side dish to compliment a spicy or strong flavored food or just as a breakfast side..Sara
