Cry Me a Nile
Copious quantities of tears I shed.
I howled, whimpered, wailed and wept.
The wily croc’s foul stealthy tread
cloaks his intent to intercept.
Fantastic lovers populate my dreams
Bestowing roaming kisses, hot and sweet.
My garden grows cucumbers, squash, zucchini, beans
and green jalapeños, too fiery to eat.
