Mr Crocodile's Back In Town

On a sweltering summer day, Mr. Crocodile's come to stay. Slithering into shops and stores, every cold thing he devours. Children's mouths drop and drool. They see what's keeping him so cool! Cats and dogs linger at his feet, licking up drippings, of sweet, stolen treats. Cops and fire trucks roar down the block, with their sirens blaring, chasing Mr. Crock. Toddler's cry while their mother's scream, to see him eating all the town's ice cream.

Thanks for reading my children's poem, Brenda, and for the 7. I just took a little flight into fantasy land and saw that crocodile crawling out of the river and followed him into town! I never know what I am going to discover when I visit that magical land, but it never fails to give me a poem! Blessings, Darlene
