The Alligators Pool

Heed Florida’s fish and wildlife commission’s conservation
the regulations, poachers preying on a protected population.
when managing these marshes sprawling territorial mortality
the environmental realities then ecotourism’s economic vitality.

Nesting reptiles along riverbanks, a crocodile hole if they mate
eggs incubating heat, the safety of the hatchings alligators seek.
The death roll no defense, that demand of meat they can’t resist
species surviving, sunshine in solitude in the swamp they rule.

I'm a father, friend, and a family man, I believe in right and wrong, I understand the value of standing on your own. I have an iron will with a poet's heart, a belief in God is where it starts.
