A Saltwater Crocodile

Grey

Colossal with blue down its back

Doubling in salt and fresh

scales segmented into tiny

suits of armor

Teeth red

it leaps and snaps

at birds

and its own kind

KIllingĀ at will

a true king

a true nightmare of nature

 

inspired by “The Shark” by Edwin John Pratt

  2. Impressive imagery. I certainly never want to meet one of these guys in the wild.
