Snake in the grass *


Slithering so smooth, soothing all edges for all people to walk on
Safely except for one who is marked upper most by the evil mind
Overwhelming green colour of the grass
With the almost invisible dull streak

The hapless snake will all the time upon a slight opportunity
Slither towards the innocent dull streak to give it Judas Iscariot hug
Firstly the poor streak will innocently hug back unaware of the evil intent
By then the focus will be on the streak
Widening by the look just like the clandestine evil intention
And smile of the snake back in the thick of the green grass

No wonder the wicked snake is forever in rivalry
With the industrious gardener
Visiting the garden now and then after tendering and irrigation
Just to sit and smile, the tail hideously pointing at the oblivious streak
The rain proved to be a nuisance for painting the streak
Which now look lusciously green, beautiful, and amiable to the forests nearby

It is matter of time that the snake and the garden shovel would meet by the light of the streak
No wonder the hapless snake on the streak was eventually most visible to the fall of the shovel
The gardener relished the eventual success over the winter streak
