Native Conviviality

Alligators, not crocodiles,
Nestle down in the bayou
Amongst the cat-tails and nutria rats
Humanity has caged them here
Under dark starry skies,
Around September, mankind returns
Culling those too slow to dive into the depths

Taxidermists delight at the sight of such a large specimen
Enthusiastically the reptiles are hoisted up
Xyloidic monuments proclaim our superiority
Apathetic children glance as they pass
Sweaty and smiling they stroll down the hill
