Snake Poems: 175 / 500

Man Vs Wild! .

Rating: 4.6

snake slithered fast across the land,
through earthen clods and burrows,
moving smooth and fast, held its head
lowered, eyes fixed on target the frog,
took the shortest path, to get on fast.

the man stood in its path holding a club
arrogance writ on his face and weapon,
quickly did the snake abandon its plan
of 'least offense' went in for plan-2
'offense one', and held up its head high,
spread its face wide, fierce and shining
eyes fixed on target, alert, heard nothing
and saw nothing, only the enemy in range.

snake now swayed its head, surveyed
and locked target with confidence, while
man too quickly changed his strategy
in a dramatic way, and took to heels! .
* i love snakes. please dont hurt it.

well penned dear poet...however one thing amazed me and that is the title itself. in fact the title depict the image of a man and a snake as one- the man-snake alike which on literary genre it seems a combinations of being and character: man- as the being, snake as associated to wisdom and wit.
