Analysis of Venomous Bites And Stings
Serpents sinuously wind when encircling their prey.
they paralyze and dismay.
Everything widens the breach once there is malevolence.
Longtime chronicles fracture
from a heartless prevalence.
Scorpions move peacefully until a confrontation.
Then there is a battle mode
with biting agitation.
An early dawn affection parallels a warm sunrise.
leads to evident demise.
Africanized honeybees manufacture sweet delights.
Aggravated they'll attack
with killer stinging flights.
Weighing in the steelyard scales are the narratives of time.
The adverse must fall below
episodes of the sublime.
