Black Vulture

Three black vultures
will have a treat.

They've found a dead caiman
they're going to eat.

    The black vulture is called a Gallinazo in Peru.  This caiman is a white caiman.  Yesterday's poem featured a black caiman.  When I started writing this poem I wanted to write black buzzards for the alliteration.  Plus, I like Z words because there are so few of them.  Today can you write a poem that uses lots of Z's?  I hope you'll leave your poem in the comments.  I can hardly wait to read them.


  1. I LIKE THIS ONE TOO.... ILY cloey

  2. Joy,
    I've never seen a white caiman before. He sure blends in with the rocks. I imagine it's a rare sight to see a dead caiman. What an adventure! Go Joy!

  3. Nozes blozes
    Blizzards of Boogerz
    But Aunt Izabel izn't laughing.
