Congratulations, Mister Snake
You gave my universe a shake!

I thought I knew you well, instead,
I didn’t spot your diamond head,

Nor did I spy your scaly coils
When you made me your comic foil.

Your darting tongue did have me fazed;
I thought it was for granting praise,

Your fangs were hidden in your smile,
You saw me coming for a mile.

But I’ll not make the same mistake,
I’ve got your number, Mister Snake.
