Colin F. Jones


If rats and snakes fight side by side,
Each from the other one must hide,
For rats make snakes a hearty meal,
And from a snake a rat will steal.
Living together in dark dank caves,
One from the other can’t be saved,
Vile poison is a toxic brew,
When bred in one and carried by two,
That the substance of the wand one waves,
The other will its power crave,
That in the end they’ll meet in Hell,
For that is where their fathers dwell.
Though they may scar the dove’s pure wing,
They will not be there to hear them sing.
