A Frilled Lizard Story
A frilled lizard is not easy to hide.
And she is bossy, mean sometimes.
There is one hiding behind my lounger now.
Waiting for me to put down the TV remote.
If she gets it she will take it back to Australia
On the next cruise liner.
I act nonchalant as I put my TV remote
Smoothly into a little drawer.
Her claw comes up and she scrapes me one
On my right arm.
I deserved it.
