They live in trees and bushes
They venture through the grass
Be careful where you sit and stand
For they have a tendency of sneaking up and biting you on the arse

My friend brought one to work one day
To show me his six foot long pet
I grabbed it by the tail and smacked its head 
On the desk until it was dead

In shock he screamed and cursed at me
I said all’s not lost there is good news
You can take it down to the local cobbler’s
And they’ll make you a lovely pair of shoes...

    Good to see you so hard at work with perverse deeds on that poor snake. Hi Sid, creative you are and I did enjoy. :)

    Murderer! I can't believe you killed that beautiful snake. I beat my snake....and then I rub it....and beat it some more. But I would never kill it. Naye, far too attached to it :D

    Great use of dark humor here, Sid. Some folks are very afraid of snakes. One was swimming in my pool one day -- red, yellow and white stripes. I found it on the internet and it wasn't poisonous, but also not a water snake so I took it out of the pool with a water strainer. It sure would have made some pretty shoes, though. LOL Love, Carolyn
