Not What We Came Here To See ~~ Micro Poetry, Dodoitsu Form

Expectations?

Alligators in the pond 
They came from miles them to see 
Gators they saw, something more 
Little dogs inhaled

I'm linked with Kerry O'Conner at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, Not What We Came Here To See ~~ Micro Poetryhttp://withrealtoads.blogspot.com/2016/08/not-what-we-came-to-see-micro-poetry.html 

This piece of micro poetry, a four line poem, is written in Dodoitsu Form, a Japanese poem form having seven syllables in its first three lines and five in the fourth.  Read more, The Writer's Digest, http://www.writersdigest.com/whats-new/dodoitsu-poetic-forms 

I am writing this evening with my iPad.  I found this alligator in the water at Port Arthur, Texas.

How about this guy?
He's a Devil not a Man
No, better,
He's a Reptile, not a Fish.

Gators appear quiet and innocent until transformed at feeding time!
