Snake digesting
waterside
hungry croc
snake inside!

Swimming salmon
seeking spawn
searing pain
bears claw!

Plants decay
feeding ground
newborn sprouts

past Hick’s farm
humming its sated fisher home

Flirting flappers
Whipper snappers

Prohibitions
Big restrictions

Legs are showing
pearls are Swirling

Charleston’s harking
Lovers sparking

Afterwards hugging

Raccoon coats
Rowing boats

Bathtub gin
Fun never ends.
