So basically I was in Florida and I stepped on a lizard. I started wailing in front of an Outback Stakehouse and I felt like I should write a poem from the lizard's point of view :)
The Outback Steakhouse Lizard Fiasco
Crawling all around, not a care in the world
A lizard I am, with a tail that's curled
I like to hang out in the sunny Florida heat
Upon this rock I shall stand for the view is quite neat
Lost in my thoughts, loud voices I'm hearing
I glance up-Oh no! I see the end is nearing
Blackness engulfs me with one final SQUISH!
Thank Frog! I'm alive! Granted has been my wish
It appears I've been stepped on, which only hurt a bit
But I stay still as a statue, trying to avoid a fit
Suddenly a human cries out and drops to her knees
Sobs rack through her body and echo amongst the trees
Why is she so upset? It's not a big deal!
She didn't mean it! She was only here for a meal
The girl causes a scene and the crowd goes silent
My mind shouts "Run!" Gosh why am I so pliant?
I scurry away and head for the dirt
As I look back, I see her face is full of hurt
I'm so sorry for running off like that, dear friend
But just know this one thing, our friendship will never end.
