The spider scampered high on the limb
The swampman knew his outlook was grim
Remembering his umbrella, it would protect him
From the poisonous bite, that soon could infect him
Caught unexpected, he uttered an oath
Just before an alligator swallowed them both
Rubbing its belly, sighing in content
The gator laughed at the twisted event

Tis a poem I wrote in ole creative writing 101 The exercise was that ole teach gave us this ridiculous list o words and we had to use them all. No lyin!

sometimes those annoying assignments can actually bring forth something very nice! I like this one a lot... you created a picture with words you did not choose...and that takes talent.

Ya gotta love a gator with a sense of humor. Your exercise sounds like it would make a good poetic challenge.
