“Gator”

I know this guy in a truck name “Gator”.

He drives by often while I’m waiting for bus #9…

I could walk down the street, maybe even pass Gator by.

Here comes gator with a grin on his face!

Gazing down at me as he saw me walking towards #9 bus stop.

Gator tossed a dime near me just as he passed me by.

He said to me,”Let’s get out of here where the road leads elsewhere…”
