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
