February 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 130

"Unnatural perversions such as the worldhad never known before. Some of the sheepactually followed him away some were lost,some again found; the farmer had to payHis life's savings for each sheep gone astrayquite a debt to have to pay. But stillhe kept the snake on.""But why does the serpent belittle him?""Because," my darling, "death's pervasive brothershe constantly carries upon his back, as heshows them murder, and studies how to hunt.Pain abounds within him, of course like bladesof grass through his mouth, settles within him,then screams through his bowels to begin again,It's incestuous father journey. (little one,don't judge, it's the only way that pain can learnfrom such a father of lies as he) Pain must getto the inside of what sprung itto learn the pattern of life it will lead. And sorrow,in its mind commits to the journey too,(though not in actuality). It watches its fatherfrom the maple's limb above the water troughand wonders what might have been. Depressionis always there with its scoff. The milk of joy,is upon him solely lost. As he breedsthe serpent is rather indiscreet.He favors every type of meat and likethe fly he'll plant his seed. Whereuponthe ugliness it'll feed.""I have never seen these things, my mother.""You've only been from the egg two days.""Still, I've noticed, how the serpent runsand plays. Are you certain that he is notjust lonely?""He thinks he is and is the only.""Very strange. But mother take me up. I must flyhigh around the farm to see what's upwith the serpent.""Oh no you don't." Think of him more you won't."Prophecy fleshed, flits with her youngto the next bush or tree to play "no more talkof the butt ugly serpent will we have today."She clucks as she laughs a lot.""Mama, put him down you said notto do. How can I learn from you?"

"I am the sky. I am the wind. I am the sun.I am the trees. I am the moon. I am theEarth. I am the animals. I am every one.""Serpent, please move. You are on my greenestpatch of clover," the cow moos."Get back! Get back." does the serpent hiss,"Okay, I'll find another. And you should do somethingabout that lisp. I think it's getting worse sounding,though it sounds just fine to me. I meanit'll do if it's what you're used to. Of courseyou used to sing. And that I admire. Butsince you went away you've become so uglyand are such a liar that...""Enough! Enough! You declare war on meI must defend myself. Back! Back!This time, I, the mighty one, am preparedfor your attack. Have you not my dear cow,seen me strike the sheep? The little onesfrom which I spare no meat? The teenyones, even which no mercy I spare?Are you not aware that I prowl here?Below your fat belly neck with a bladeof sharp silk grass with which to fend.""Let me try again, dear snake.""Will your insulting words never cease to end!""Nevertheless, I will try again. I am a patientcow. To my uncouthness I will not bend.Not eloquent, but good before the plow,and strong, though to be weak like youbut quick with words I would admire to be.""You coward! Can you not insult me outright?""What did I say?""I see. But you fear my crafty mind or might.What I might do it I got hold of you.So you twist your words and bend complimentto damned insult, and bend reportsinto good insults to use like, 'How do you do,Mister Snake hiding alone in the grass.' And'what happened to those free running legs,or is that something, snake, I was not supposedto ask?' It's insulting. Degrading. And thatyou know full well!""Oh, snake, I think I see your point.I understand now! You're sad and sufferingfrom the loss of all dignity and pride,and because you're sentenced to eternal damnation and hell,I understand!""No you do not!""The body rot, the disease, the loss of your legs,these are things you didn't intend. Aren't I bright?Aren't I right? And it's fear you have --that's the constant looking round this way and that!And the reason the dog chases you because it would be embarrassing to youif that job were given to the house catof whom even the mice have no fear.Poor poor snake. Am I near? Am I near?
