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!
