The Snake


Youth Sections
"The Braves Arise "
The snake inaudibly stalks its prey

Not a peep it makes

I must say

The mouse, unaware of the snake

Goes on about its normal business

The snake still awaiting the moment

In which it will pounce

The moment comes

The snake attacks

The mouse does not expect it

Too bad for the mouse

It is the snake's moment of triumph

The snake teaches us that silence is golden.

It makes no sound and in return it gets the mouse.
