Just one of the 1,001 Tales residing for all eternity in the Fiction House.
The butterflies’ nemesis, the gators.
* * *
See purty buttahfly – see dem flits.
Onst our snouts by mistakes, they sits.
Gulp, yum! Ah so coloricious we would glow;
Me ‘n gatorhoodhood frien’ Thibidioux-
As dey twitter downst into our belly pits
* * *
(Read more of the gators’ threats to the beautiful Calico in the novel, Tales of Fiction House. Join me every Sunday night at the Fiction House, your place for short story, lark, whimsy, and merriment. Meet the many residents as I archive their lives and centuries of adventures. You can read of their origins in my novel TALES OF THE FICTION HOUSE. My novel is available at Amazon, (Kindle and Trade Paperback) and Barnes and Noble.)
