Hello, I’m Crocky, Doctor Crock.
You’ve no doubt seen the way I rock,
The way I shock
With awesome jaws
And teeth that lock.
You’ve no doubt seen the tail I swing,
The way I spring,
My armoured force,
My fearsome fling.
I’m sure you’ve seen the way I spy
With eyes set high
Above the water
Where I lie.
But did you know
That I’m the great survivor?
One meal a month is all I need.
I fast – I don’t give way to greed.
I can endure long spells of drought.
Entombed in mud, I can hold out
For I’m the great survivor.
Two hundred million years I’ve been
Evolving on this earth of green
Far longer than the human race
So they should honour, give me space.
I’ve seen the dinosaurs arise;
I’ve seen them fall and fossilize.
I’ve witnessed meteors, heat and cold,
Strange climate change yet kept my hold
For I’m the great survivor!
