Alligators

Alligators

 

I’m not as gullible as you might think,

although experience might be lacking.

I have my doubts about what you say, but

I don’t believe there is danger lurking.

 

Although experience might be lacking,

naively I skirt the water’s edges.

I don’t believe there is danger lurking,

so I’m throwing all caution to the wind.

 

Naively, I skirt the water’s edges.

Perhaps I shouldn’t taunt what I can’t see?

If I’m throwing all caution to the wind,

would I learn if something really bit me?

 

Perhaps I shouldn’t taunt what I can’t see

if I have my doubts about what you say,

I might learn if something really bit me,

but I am not that gullible today.
