A SNAKE IN DISGUISE

A SNAKE IN DISGUISE

1 min 13.7K 1 min 13.7K

One fine day, I found an egg

Abondoned,

subject to human stomping.

My soft hands picked it up

and brought it home.

I placed it in a warm place

Safe from the world.

And daily I waited for the 

little one to come out.

Must be a birdie I thought.

Another fine day, the egg broke

and the little creature was gone.

Must be a birdie I thought.

I was sad that it flew away.

I did not have a chance to know 

how it looked and what it was.

I placed the broken shells

in my glass cupboard

as a token in its memory.

Days passed by, and I kept

myself busy in the garden.

until one night when I was 

sound asleep,

I heard a hiss, 

something moved slowly

and crawled on my bed.

My brother who had heard the hiss

caught it and threw it away.

The snake ran away and I jumped

out of the bed cowering with fear.

An egg that I bought home

grew into a full size snake

only to attack it's saviour

after it had killed several small

pets in the garden.

The broken shells continue

to adore the showcase

as a symbol for the lesson learnt

DO NOT TRUST SOMEONE

just because they are weak.

It is possible that they can

act weak or innocent to gain

your trust and sympathy.
