Ode To The Rattlesnake

Woe unto the Rattlesnake
For his life cannot be good

Living under sticks and rocks
And logs of rotting wood

He spends his winter in a den
All damp, dark, and smelly

Sleeping for months on end
With nothing in his belly

Then finally comes the summer
And he crawls back outside

Stretches on a flat rock
To sun his scaly hide

And when his cold thick blood
Finally starts to heat

He slithers on his stomach
For he has no little feet

With his forked tongue
He tests the dusty air

Looking for a tasty meal
Of anything with hair

And when he finally finds it
In hopes of getting fat

He swallows is dinner whole
Even a stinking rat

If you hear the rattle tail
You better start to worry

Get the heck out of there
And do it in a hurry

The tell tale buzz
Will leave you with no doubt

If you stick around a little long
His bite will take you out

But fear not the Rattlesnake
For even he is not without foe

He trembles at the very thought
Of ole Trailboss with a hoe

And if I should miss a lick
With my trusty hoe

I'll just look for other ways
to finish off this show

I'll shoot ole Rattler in the head
With a Colt or Smith & Wesson

And hang him on a fence
To teach his buddies a lesson

Very nice! Maybe not quite as poignant and soul wrenching as Chews, but good nonetheless!
