A Honey Badger's on the prowl....

"Don't mind if I do help myself 
With some honey as you guys swarm me
Loudly buzz about my ears, and incessantly sting me
You're all upset that I'm trespassing? Deal with it
Stay mad. You can't drive me off the nest. Sure, I'll leave...
After I satisfy sweet tooth. After all, I'm a Honey Badger! 
Keep on buzzing, and stinging, you angry bees
I will not go deaf, and your stings don't bother me a bit"

The next day....

"Hey there, Black Mamba, I see you up that tree!
And guess what? I'm coming for ya...and we'll duel!
I don't care how big, how long, or how fast you are
You will not slither away from me! 
You'll hiss, and spit, and strike with no success...
 I'm immune to your poison. You will concede defeat
To me. You are my prey, my dinner. Watch me...
Bite your head off and eat you alive!"
