The other day in the parking lot

Was interrupted by a scream…

A woman in serious trouble,

To that location people streamed.

She said it had dark beady eyes

And an awful gaping mouth…

She screamed in terror of the beast,

Every dreadful ounce!

Reminded me of my Dad

Who claimed near the Channel he saw…

A giant killer rabbit,

Like the MONTY PYTHON draw.

I think President Carter at the time

Claimed to see such a beast…

I don’t think that he screamed like a girl,

Had presence of mind–at least.

Anyway, this firy dragon at which

The startled woman screamed…

Was a turtle—the size of a woman’s palm–

Not ferocious indeed!
