Mamba Night at the Marsh

There's a party down at the marsh, amongst all the wild amphibians, Theresa toad croaking alongside her tadpoles, all one thousand and one of them, Carla the crayfish catering all the food, all of the partygoers in a festive mood, the dragonflies doing their aerial light show, getting much applause, they take a bow, The crayfish band playing like mamba kings, while the tadpoles do their synchronized swim, even Rocky the raccoon stepping on in, spinning round and round doing the swing, While Sally the salamander does the mamba marsh dance, Lenny the Lizard was looking for romance, dancing all night with her in the marshy swamp, watching out for gators and their big toothy chomp, Till Sammy the snake cop slithered on in, about to tell them to stop disturbing the peace, instead he started slithering and grinning all on a whim, hissing along to the the crayfish mamba kings beat. 11-11-16 Collaboration with Mike Hauser
