a poem about almost getting attacked by a rattlesnake.




a rattle snake


picking blackberries

in the thicket

boys heard a

rattling noise


froze in their tracks

recognized the sound

only a rattle snake can make


spotted coiled snake

in front of them


snake turned head

towards one

then the other

slowly back and forth

rattling for all it was worth


one boy had apple in pocket


when snake turned away

threw apple near the snake


snake turned from boys

struck where apple landed


boys ran for dear life

dropping bucket of berries


no blackberries for a pie

what would my

mama say
