The snake in the truck. Funny but true.


Out of the window A snake I did spy.
To catch or not?
To catch is to live as to not is for it to die.
I choose quickly for it, I gave it life.
I had the blessing of all, even my wife.
In the truck I placed the snake.
I held to it tightly for all of our sake.
Down the road with the snake did we go.
To A hardware house we knew called Buy Low.
Into the store I went with my snake.
All the people inside tried to escape.
Only Chris did not run screaming from my gag.
The only to help as I placed the snake in A bag.
Mark was ashiver with fright from my snake.
Screaming and threatening his attitude was hate.
He related A story of how he had killed one.
A bazooka was used in place of A gun.
Into the wall he blew A great hole.
With the destruction of all he had achieved his goal.
A poor snake was certainly dead.
He seemed to take great pride in the words that he said.
I tried to explain how snakes are our friends.
They deserve to live they're lives not to be destroyed by frightened little men.
Back in the truck I placed the snake in A bag.
A little while later my wife started to nag.
Is there enough air in the bag for the snake to live?
I opened the bag for more air to give.
Wait...........
No snake..........
I lifted the bag.
No weight, backfired had my gag!
Free was the snake out of the sack.
Chewed through the bag and slithered to the back.
Search and search but no luck the snake was out of sight.
The snake was lost to all as I searched with my might.
Even at home I found the snake was hard to find.
A friend came to help, he had A like mind.
Of snakes he is a great friend, he would save one.
Or if he had his way they would be saved by the ton.
Finally the snake moved, of it he did spy.
Caught rather swiftly Justin gave out A sigh.
Into the house was brought this slithering beast.
No one feared it not even the least.
Even A child was soon touching it's head.
All wished it long life as it was released under the shed.
Snakes are our friends.
Learn and teach.

    Without snakes we would be overrun with vermin.
    Something to think about.

    its nearly a phobia, i used to have nightmares about waking up with a snake in the bed repeatedly biting me...

    Edit: i should add in that the only places i have killed snakes was where they threatened the well-being of livestock and at the summer camp i worked at for several years, when i encounter them at the house i skedaddle.

    Same here, I am scared of snakes but no desire to kill them. They have the same right as us to live.

    I have 5 ball python morphs and 2 corn snakes. If I found a stray snake my would will come running and catch it. She has no fear of snakes if if they are poisonous or venomous. She brought me a Copperhead one day just to show me what she caught. I used to be terrified of snakes. Once I started learning about them the fear went away.

    Rattlers and water mocassins meet a quick end when I see them; the others can go free and eat all the vermin they want
