Snake in a tree

I am watched by a snake

He stalks me night and day

Watching from his tree

In the branches near where I play

He keeps on following me, everywhere, every way

Even in my dreams I cannot escape

He talks to my mind

I hear him quite clear

He tells me soon, that he’ll be near

But why does he want me?

This sly and cunning snake

Where will he take me? 

What thirst will I slake?

He tells me soon but also not yet

Why does he toy with me?

What plan has he set?

I am just a little dog

Who play by his tree

What is it that he wants?

Why does he want me?

I do not know

But I am scared

Because I feel stalked, will I be ensnared?

Is he a hunter and am I his prey?

How will the story end and in what way?

Is he a nice snake, or is he bad?

When I find out, I shall be glad

Because I feel strange being stalked by a snake

As I sit chewing toys right here by the lake

Why does he watch me?

And why does he say…

That soon he will come and take me away?

Away to where? 

Death and doom?

Or does he love me?  Will I know soon?

Oh clever snake, how appealing you are

But I can’t help but think

This is all bizarre

Do I trust that you will care

That you will love me, do you swear?

Or will I get bitten, like I have before

By other snakes who have bitten my paw?

I don’t know, but I like you a lot

But I don’t know if I can trust you or not

I’m a little dog, a puppy really

So to go with a snake, could be silly…

How will I know if I am safe with you?

Will you eat me? I have no clue!

But smiling happy snake, believe you me

I wish you would love and cherish me

I wish you’d wrap around me so

But then my life could up and go

Oh funny snake

It’s a puzzle really

Why you say, that you love me

Or are you just charming this little pup

So that you can feast upon her flesh and eat her all up?

Oh little snake, how I wish I knew

But I should go indoors now, before you chew

Though silly snake, I wish you were true

But for now I don’t know, I have no clue

Bye funny snake, I wish you well

But I have to go, before I fall under your spell
