Treasure Island

Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Antivenom


time to milk lab rattle snake
the rattle snake rattles in warning
the rattle snake rattles to get attention
the rattle snake strikes in defence
the rattle snake strikes in aggression

sinking fangs deep into violation flesh
sinking fangs deep into intruder careless
sinking fangs deep into territory threats
sinking fangs deep into trespass violators

antivenom is made for warnings disregarded
antivenom is made for human trespassers
antivenom saves pilgrim innocent lives
antivenom is turn elixir of injected life

    Though the mysterious creatures snakes are threat to life there is antivenom to treat innocent humanity. But is there any special venom to treat innocent people from the deep bites of humans? Bitter truth of life! marks 10 (Report) Reply

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
