Python Refuses to Share Lunch

little coil
shiver and shake
tiny squeeze
squeak
tah dah tah dah

anaconda arrives
need any help? she asks
python hisses a warning
constricting a bit tighter

louder squeak, then silence
dinner’s eyes pop out

python smiles
not about to
share her
lunch
anaconda 
slithers away

Even talking about snakes gives me the shivers, and we live in Africa, and, I have had one slither over my foot! Funny. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

I have saved some. Taken them out of the mouth of the cat, while they were babies and still alive. They cohabit with me, and are grateful.
