Alligators

They lived in the spring run you know
The alligators
They lived in the cistern too
Behind the wire window
Don’t get too close
I saw one!
Look out!
Did you?
And beneath the slanty roof
Where it was fun to slide down
But where the ever present threat
Of the alligators
In western pa
Specially bread for the cold winters
Kept us
Not really
From enjoying the game
They lived there you know
In the icy water
In our fertile imaginations
And in the threats
To keep us in line
