An egg cracks open and out a baby crocodile
The carer feeds it food daily
Day by day the crocodile grows in size and length
Into a large and strong crocodile
Day by day the carer’s hair turns grey to white
On a sunny day
The growling crocodile observes its carer’s feeble walk
Chomping the last food
Tears roll down its eyes
Filled with pity
Carer goes near it to comfort
Blood drips out of the carer’s stomach
Losing strength to breathe his last
As the crocodile watches the tragic sight happily
Feeding the carer as its last meal
Without realizing the carer is its master
Since then, the crocodile’s stomach growls daily
No more food
It closes its eyes for the last time

An ungrateful crocodile visual poetry appeared in my dream. It speaks a meaningful story to me to be careful of crocodile tears. A few times, I have falled into prey and I need to beware and to share this to you all. Wish you all have good days and thank you.
This is why I hang out with frogs and turtles only.
I see ^_^ my problem is some people I meet is crocodiles hiding in frogs clothing
Wow, Yoshiko! There is so much here. Tears aren’t always the sign of true sympathy, but false sentiment. You dreamed this? That’s amazing.
Yes. In my dream. It scares me because I had been in the situations of being lied to. I don’t know why such a dream.
I wonder too
Reblogged this on Moral Value Story and commented:
It is important for us to be discerning.
I have heard the expression crocodile tears before but never seen it in a poem – very creative, Yoshiko!
😳 thank you, Christy
We usually talk of ‘a crocodile in sheepskin’. The world is full of evil people who tell lies and hurt others. At the same time, it is full of excellent people who will show you genuine love. Let us celebrate the good friends we have and pray for the bad ones that God might touch their hearts and transform them.
