The Cobra's Nightmare

The Cobra’s Nightmare

By Elton Camp

Carl the Cobra has little to fear
Few enemies to him draw near

He can flatten his neck and hiss
When striking, he’ll seldom miss

His venom is the most toxic around
One bite & his victim will go down

Carl sallied forth one fine day
He was hungry for some prey

After he had enjoyed a good meal
A quick nap, Carl decided to steal

A pleasant dream he had at first
Then came a nightmare--the worst

Carl found himself in a terrible spot
Not facing one mongoose, but a lot

“How’d I get in such a fix as this!”
Poor Carl dreamed of his final hiss

    A very nice read. I enjoyed you should be writing for children! A great story.

    The last couple of things I've written, I rather had children in mind. It would be fun to write something youngsters could enjoy. Elton
