the rabbit and the snake

the rabbit and the snake
what a match they make
both unique and divine
when schedules align
they will finally meet
each they’ll soon seek

the snake with his sharp teeth
the rabbit and her quick feet
he admires her from afar
like a distant star
soon with his smooth talk
she’ll go from run to walk

the rabbit and her ears
taken over by quick fears
to listen to a silver tongue
every breath from his lung
building trust anew
into a bond to pursue

bewildered by their attraction
their mutual satisfaction
of appearances and intellect
it made sense in retrospect
to believe this take
of the rabbit and the snake
