The Serpent




The appearance of a snake,
brings with it great fear.
For the sight of a serpent,
means destruction is near.

But those weak of heart,
who act like they're blind.
Say the serpents not deadly,
if you follow his line.

So be not deceived,
of his flute and his baskets.
For there's no charming evil,
just graves and caskets.

For the serpents approach,
is deceitfully mild.
Wooing their audience,
with charm and a smile.

Planning it's prey's destruction
with a smile and a grin.
 While waiting for the right moment,
to just take them in.

Man is the only being,
 willing to make friends with a snake.
But in time we realize,
it was a deadly mistake.
