Sitting Pool

Something I wrote maybe 13 years ago:

Salamander sits in a sitting pool,
eyes bulging through the water,
trying to get some shade and being cool,
while the day keeps heating getting hotter.

Fly flies by makes waves in the air,
salamander's snack causes fodder
'cause swimming nearby with streaks in his hair,
is a pudgy little cute littler otter.

Snapping of the tongue, salamander's undone,
his snack becomes snack for the otter.

Another day at the pond
and life goes on
not for all but for some,
in the riffles and the runs,
of the sitting pool in the water.

This is actually very good and entertaining. I might edit it a tad different but to be honest I like it very much Benji.
This pond doesn't have chlorine in it, does it?
Thanks TWM, I kinda like it too. I was thinking I should teach it to my son - would make a fun campfire chant.

X: I was envisioning more "natural" deaths in this case ;-)
or it could be seen as a Winnie the Pooh-esque hum.
