Meet Cross' Critters: Part VII: Elmer & Super


A poem, by Elmer & Super, Mr. Cross' classroom geckos.

"Do not call us freaks,
although we lack eyelids
and keep our eyeballs clean by licking their see-through covering.

Do not call us freaks,
although our toes cling us to every known surface,
except the Teflon pan in your kitchen.

Do not call us freaks,
although in fits of anger,
we will shoot our putrid smelling feces in your direction.

Do not call us freaks,
although we defend our lives
by losing our tails (only to have them grow back again).

Do not call us freaks,
although we can't speak for the Geico gecko
who so willingly gives away our savings of 15% or more on car insurance.

Do not call us freaks.
Elmer and Super will suit just fine."

"Live, Learn, Teach"
