  • I says,
    "Pardon Mr. Crocodile,

    Could you not crunch
    me bones so loudly,
    I’m atryin’ ta sleep.

    An’ were it not
    A smile you gave me
    Ere you decide me to eat?

    Well, I guess
    there's no point in cryin’
    It’s a waste o' time ta weep;
    for we all'll be a seein'
    death's sharp an' vicious teeth."

    And he says’
    “I ain’t no crocodile-
    I’mma alligator!”
