SNAKE IN THE BUSH

ONE DAY MY MOM ,UNCLE, COUSIN AND ME
WENT TO THE MARSH TO PICK BLUEBERRIES.

THE BUSHES WERE LOW AND EASY TO SEE,
MOM STAYED BEHIND WITH MY COUSIN AND ME.

MY UNCLE TOOK OFF TO ANOTHER SPOT.
AS TIME WENT ON, THE DAY GREW HOT.

MOM KEPT PICKING FOR QUITE A SPELL,
WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN WE HEARD HER YELL.

MY COUSIN AND I HAD BEEN TAKING A BREAK,
WHEN MOM SAID SHE'D BEEN BIT BY A SNAKE

WE CALLED FOR MY UNCLE, HE WAS NO WHERE NEAR.
BY THEN WE WERE ALL FILLED WITH FEAR.

WE WENT TO THE CAR AND KEPT BLOWING THE HORN
HE DIDN'T COME BACK FOR US TO WARN.

MY MOM GOT INTO THE CAR WITH ME,
WHILE MY COUSIN WENT UP THE TALLEST TREE

HE YELLED 'TIL HE CAUGHT  MY UNCLES EAR,
WHO HURRIED BACK, WE WERE FILLED WITH FEAR.

WE BANDAGED HER LEG,AN HOUR HAD GONE BY
SHE HAD NO REACTIONS, SO WE KNEW SHE WOULDN'T DIE

SHE HAD STEPPED IN A BUSH WITH A NEST OF SNAKES,
ALL OF THEM BABIES,NON-POISON, GOSH SAKES.

SHE'S LUCKY IT DIDN'T TURN OUT TOO BAD,
BUT IT WAS THE WORST BERRY PICKING WE EVER HAD....
