    i ain't a haiku expert, but i think this one hits the spot! ! !

    nature and descriptive. i think the snake was just having a bad day.

    bri :)

    re other comment below, maybe big instead of bad, though i think it IS a bad mistake also. some dumb boa?
    well, it can't hurt to send to MyPoemList, can it?

    Is this an actual picture? How did the snake make such a mistake, a witty write and you have a picture to support it too.. ps. I think perhaps if you remove 'bad' from the third line, will make this a perfect haiku fitting the 5-7-5 syllable meter, though I am still a student learning technicalities of haiku. thanks.
