Good is the bait
that the snake uses
Good to the taste
is what he abuses

A delight to the eyes
Is his disguise

How good it feels
Is how he reels

In his prey
How he captures his victims
He dare not delay
To trap them, to get them

In his clutches
To get them in his grasp
He even uses those
That he already has

Hired for his service
As members of his gang
The snake loves to employ
Those with fangs

  1. Dorothy, I enjoyed following snakes through your two posts. Perhaps you must have some appreciation for snakes.

    I can remember a young grandson who was excited to touch a snake at the zoo, but he decided to pass when his turn came.
