About crocodiles

To start with
they don’t have arms particularly.
It is in this way
they most resemble their cousins
the Tyrannosaurus Rex,
especially if one imagines them
standing on their hind legs
and trying to paw at the back door
to be allowed in,
knowing full well that it’s five
and dinner time
and there’s a goat
staked out (still alive)
in the middle of your living room
(on the carpet).
We had a Bichon Frisé (not related)
who would do the same.
