Eve's Advocate

With patience, in a concealed place,
in long grass, or a packing case
as unwary prey comes apace
never his footsteps to retrace

With cold eye, beady, dead in space,
Uncoiling with hypnotic grace,
Slow motion skin - an awful lace,
 To silent earth, no sudden trace.

    Good one on that snake in the grass!! The expression fits so well for people who act that well as well! suz, about Tom Cruise, I read some things about his marriage and learned that he was very sweet to his Catie. But he let his religious leaders dominate their lives. I guess we can't know for sure but maybe people are giving him a worse rap than he deserves!

    For what he did to humanity - his flattened head I yearn to see..... Good morning... You are writing well ..... and I'm loving it..... Jake
