Standing Tall

Condemned by God to slither thus,
for tempting Eve to bite,
the snake at first stood tall and proud
and always was upright.

Alas since then he has to hide
prepared to make his strike,
to tempt again the fairer sex
who led him to this plight.

So legless, withered, long or short,
condemned by female pride,
the snake is ready to grow tall,
and find a place to hide.

For when his moment comes at last
he's proud and tall and strong,
then spits with pleasure at the ones
temptation strung along.

And thus it satisfies itís need,
inbred in all itís kind,
in bringing forth the fruits of love
to feed all womankind!
