Have you had enough of food fights?  Here is what the elephants do.


An elephant never
has fights with food.
His mother taught him
it’s downright right rude.
You never know who
might get hit and cry
If you toss your food,
or let it fly.

But down by the river
what an incredible sight!
All through the morning
and into the night
Spraying & splashing
left and right
Elephants are having a
water fight.

So here is today's challenge.  Think of another animal.  We all eat don't we?  So what if those animals had a food fight, or fought over food.
Maybe ants, lizards, monkeys, robins or snakes?  What would it look like?  What would is sound like, or smell like?  And my gracious be sure to include what it tastes like and feels like to the animal.  Have fun and let those words fly.   Have a great day.
