Now the python scares me.

by maddrunkgenius

But as a child I nailed a rattlesnake to the floor (straight into the wood) and chopped its rattle in half.

Once I cut off its head; now the body’s jerkings put me to flight.

But that’s because the rattlesnake is immortal, and if we let it finds its head, we’ll never know it’s coming.

(How long, O Lord, how long?)
