Snakepit - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

when you find yourself
inside a snake pit
you can not just be naive
to be bitten and even
swallowed by another
you become a snake
yourself and bite
as many as you can

this is the law of the
survival of the fittest snake
and when you emerge
as the victor

go back to your form
coy dove, white feathers,
lovely beak
gentle claws
