Eels by Freddy Davey (First Prize)

The eel can slide from side to side.
They’re really big, and like to hide.
They have long bodies, but no hair.
They use their eyes to see with care.
They taste your scent if you are near.
And spark a threat for you to hear.
It’s wise of you to clear their way
So you do not have an awful day!
