The Electric Eel

None should think fun nor wish to feel
A shock from an electric eel
Like Zeus its bolts pack lots of juice
To test it out would be obtuse

    They are creepy creatures. I enjoyed seeing this as I came here quickly to see contests and noticed recent winners that I just had to congratulate!!! I have to tell you a story. When I was small, I lived by the Mississippi and somehow I got it into my mind, from a book or something, that eels could come from the river up my porch. So I sat way up on the porch rail making sure they could not get to my feet. What weird stuff I remember!!
