Oh, Florida Man

Florida Follies

By Geoffrey Philp Published 12 months ago 1 min read

Oh Florida man, Florida man, what can I say

That you haven’t done in your own peculiar way?

Like stealing an alligator from a wildlife park,

Surfing with a rope tied around the nose of a shark

Or riding a manatee through a busy waterway?
