A fun one

 


The green-eyed monster


At rest,


Like a slumbering volcano


Slowly awakening


Uncoiling, roiling


Getting ready


To strike!


Slowly slithering


Into the light


 


Malice and avarice,


Insidiously creeping


Palpable


Smouldering,


Simmering,


Sizzling


Green


With envy and jealousy


 


Stealthily drawing closer


“Oh!  What a delight


Today is the day


I’ve decided


To make you


Pay


I will have it my


Way


You can no longer


Keep me at


Bay”


 


Boiling


Roiling


Striking


Hitting the mark


Venom, mixing with blood


Flooding – coursing – flowing swiftly


Through veins


 


Gagging


Sagging


Feeling like lead


“Guess what”?


You’re dead!

Ah ... Africa in my home once more. West Africa it was for me 1973-78.
Once confronted a Black Cobra. Did not have time to compose a poem on that occasion however. Glad you did.

Best wishes
