Entry in Story Poem Contest for I Write in 2018
|Sally Salamander slithered
as I opened my garage
The door appeared to frighten her
After all, it is quite large
Lightning fast, she slides along
concrete floor into the cracks
Her day's a mystery beckoning
until there came my neighbor's cats
A tabby and a black feline
They prowl and scan my yard
No respect have they for property
Salamander supper in their cards?
Run Sally! Head for freedom!
Escape this cunning catly crew!
Sally lies quite clever hiding now -
She's safe inside my shoe!
