Baby Pythons

Just as deadly as his Mama
He bit me when I wasn’t looking–
Turned my blood to water
Dripping like rain through
my struggling heart
bleeding me out in no time at all.
And he did not know
Because there’s no way
he could.

And the anti-venom did
little to settle things down
And I rested my head on the
foot of the bed
And remembered the day
I wanted to go for a hike
And instead met his
python unexpectedly.
