Attractive Innocent Snakes


A myriad of snakes all around,
Macroscopically exotic with serpentine gait,
Iridescent their skins, mysterious their eyes.
Namely, a man was lured and extended his hand;
A snake voiced loudly, and voiced this way:
“Killing by stinging, we’re ingrained to respond thus.
How artfully we sting even those who feed us!
Attractive innocent snakes we’re attractive innocent snakes;
No, we’re not monstrous, stinging is our inherited art.”

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
