a snake slithers,
can you understand?
the danger?
resist,
the venom of the bite,
it injects into you,
being too close,
run,
as blood and venom,
swirl and mix,
in your blood,
curious,
to get closer,
careless you become,
the rattling,
antidote,
is nearer, is available,
your risk now cured,
silly boy,
like a cat,
who investigates too near,
the outcome was so clear,
the snake has no second thought,
just a reaction,
natural,
you cam too close,
it felt attacked,
it retaliated
one nil to the snake
