A baby iguana

A baby iguana
From Tijuana
With a dewlap
Like a wattle
Drank taquilla
From a bottle
For the worm inside
And drank it all
This alcohol
Got pickled
Bottled
And died

    I love animals. I try to come up with new animal poems but I'm running out of ideas. Starting to work on writing poems about unusual animals.

    Wry and clever. I didn't show it to my wife whose volunteer work at the local animal shelter involves care of the iguanas since no one else wants anything to do with them. I think they're OK but certainly hope they don't imbibe.

    I remember seeing worm in one of those and wondered why they would do that. Enjoyed your wit, Jon. Have a happy Thanksgiving and do a lot of shopping :).
