Dancing In The Jaws of Death

Thinking that she is invincable

She dances in the Jaws of  Death

She picks plack from the creature's teeth

She dares it to snap.


It chases here for ten yards

And then down a hole.

She does not get the hint.

She is dumber than coal.


She goes back again the next day

And dances in the Jaws of  Death

Clap! This time the creature snaps

And crushes her to death.
