The Armadillo


THE ARMADILLO

There was an armadillo
That came from Amarillo
He discovered an 18-wheeler
To really be a killer
Now the armadillo from Amarillo
Lies in death on a concrete pillow
Perhaps he should have stayed in Amarillo

    Cute one..There have been many turned belly up in the roads here lately..They look like very young ones that experienced a bad lesson about cars and trucks...Great work..I am glad that I chose this one to read today..Sara

    I like this one. Concrete pillow is a cool line.

    I don't know where these kinds of thought patterns evolve from but I just started thinking and out it came. Thanks for your support.

    Thanks, Dr. Ram: Just a bunch of silly rhyming words that suddenly popped into my head. I appreciate your comments and your support.

    BG: Glad to hear that you could see the humor in this even if it did seem a little morbid. I spent more time in Amarillo than I care to talk about during my Air Force career, but I'll never go again by my own choice.
