Snakes


the snake
slithers around
sneaky
not a sound

creeps upon
his prey
attacks then
runs away

he might be
pretty look at
outside hes a snake
inside hes a rat

beware of him
he bites
and does it within
his rights

the snake
will smother
even kill
his own mother

snakes are
full of greed
upon your soul
he will feed

the snake is
a self-adoring creature
humility
is not a feature

snakes are
everywhere
so
beware

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
