Adventurous Alexis (Alliteration)
Adventurous Alexis awoke an alligator,
by Aubrey McClure
And it almost ate her arm.
Alexis attempted to run away,
So it wouldn’t do her harm.
Alexis tried to climb a tree,
But the alligator followed.
He chased her through the swamp,
Past where the hippos wallowed.
Finally Alexis stopped,
And trembling, turned to her chaser.
The alligator cocked his head,
And scanned her like a laser.
The alligator grinned and said,
“I mean you no harm at all.
I was wondering if you had some bread,
I’m extremely hungry you know!
