The Snake


The snake is long, long, long and long
The snake is black, green, yellow, red, stripes and spot
The is coloured , colourful and colourless
The snake is clever, resilience and courageous son of land
The snake is beautiful, beautified slender daughter of land
The snake is singing, singing, singing, and singing jingoism
The snake is eating, eating, eating, eating and eating the grass
The snake is of our savanna grassland is eating fruit
The snake is eating sweet, round, square, oblong and oval fruit
of our forest

    This is a very nice poem- totally un-hackneyed approach to a much-vilified creature. The snake is redeemed in literary terms, . Though the English could be cleaned-up, and I don't think snakes eat fruit, the summary verdict, in emotional terms is refreshingly positive. MM (Report) Reply

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
