Platypus Takes Shelter

A platypus is living down under
He has a great fear of loud thunder

  When it rains, he takes shelter
  Makes a quick helter-skelter

Beneath a croc' he eyes lightning with wonder

    This paints a cute picture of that platypus peeking out from under a big croc! (and maybe next he will be in that croc's belly! Do crocs eat a platypus?) Luv, Andrea

    Hah! He's afraid of thunder so he finds shelter underneath a crocodile? Poor platypus doesn't have much of a life expectancy I'm afraid. Made me laugh out loud! Best wishes in the contest. Love, Carolyn
