FOOD FOR THOUGHT

When I went walking in the lower latitudes
I moved to recently
I was surprised
to see the sign:

DO NOT FEED THE ALLIGATORS.

I  began to feel so far away
from where I’d been
I was incredulous.
There are lots of rabbits here
but I am used to them.

I’m sure those alligators
appreciate those rabbits
even more than I.
