Seeing

Once I saw an alligator

Going up an escalator

Dressed in silly frilly boots.

But all the people dressed in suits

With stiff-starched shirts and shiny shoes,

Their noses pressed in morning news

Of companies and stocks and shares,

Remained completely unawares.

The alligator caught my eye

As if to say ‘Oh really, why

Are grown-ups so absurd?’

And then it carried on, unheard

By everyone except for me.

But that is how it is, you see.
