The Boa

Just a single bite
Releasing a ghastly venom
That courses through the veins

Constricting the airways
Making it impossible to speak
And inhibiting any gulp of breath

It slithers away
Waiting to strike again
Where It need not wait long

Oh, how can she continue
When all that awaits her
Is sssssseizure?
