Snake in the Grass Poem


Wickedly venomous and underhanded
…snake in the grass ploddingly disguised
Counterfeit smiles and phony concerns
…patiently waiting to taste the next prey

Beautifully displayed outlook
…secretly plotting ugly schemes
Harm and sting underneath
…without a conscience and unforgiving

Pretending to be obliging and useful
…bait to lure without compassion
Snake in the grass vigorously maneuvering
…scattering seeds of iniquity and trouble

Cloaking its actual resolve
…fittingly bejeweled to mislead
Belly crawler and evil spirit
…creatively about to defeat

Discovered from a birds-eye view
…collected for a nest of a young hungry few
Snake in the grass eaten alive
…justified poetic way to die
