Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

Even a grumpy baby alligator
Gets its lethal fangs much later
Especially if its savage pater
Was a discombobulator

Oh David, I didn't know you were a Southern Boy...discombobulated being a very Southern Term lol...

Lavinia Ladyslipper said...

But after a while,
A crocodile
Seems more my style
By a country mile

I love this one - thanks for the chuckle!

And the million dollar question - just how does a daddy alligator discombobulate? Or is that a very rude question?

Lee said...

LOL Love the consistency of your rhymes, David. I'm wondering if that baby alligator was growing up in the swamps or the sewer. :)

... or as daughter #2 used to announce so proudly at the zoo to all who were within earshot "...lookit! Addimagattors!"

Discombobulator...... not a word
That I have ever really heard!
I checked on Google I they tell
That I could download one very well.
I will not be doing so in case
It's something nasty from Home Base.
I'll stick to alligator's, small & whoppers
Though l would always avoid their choppers!
