The Split Tongue of the Serpent

Updated on November 7, 2010

What is real?

  Who can see?

    what's seen in night

         real or fake

      danger waiting to strike

           the Snake,

             Scalely friend

                 stocks critters on the ground

             forked tongue

                 shifting eyes

                    that sees what lives

                        hunts what moves

                            hisses, rattles, silently slithers

                            Seeing we fear

                         hearing we flee

                        some try to catch them

                         use their juices

                            for whatever might be

                                but see a hunter

                                     loathes company who cross its path

                                         without anything to give to its appetites 

                                            a danger to man

                                            fearing venom's sure purpose

                                               A threat to man's body

                                                    a thing to be feared

                                                      Death to the view.

                                                     There are some

                                                              remembering, from those

                                                                      who spout belief in a Christ

                                                                   Who open a book

                                                                       not understood

                                                                             Shouting Hell, Fire, Damnation

                                                                                not Faith, Repentance, Consecration

                                                                             but treat stories of Christ's book

                                                                           as if infallible

                                                                       in the hands of men

                                                                       then talk about

                                                                           What did befall

                                                                                   In the very beginning

                                                                                          of the Sons of God

                                                                                               Then hear they an alliteration

                                                                                                     and see the scalely symbol

                                                                                                     that hints at such "truth"

                                                                                              they then see temptation

                                                                                      an abomination

                                                                                  a curse

                                                                                 Another thing to be feared

                                                                           Something perverse.

                                                                            Now here is the link

                                                                                a thought not repined

                                                                                      one form is death of body

                                                                                      second is death to the divine

                                                                                   which do you fear

                                                                               this thing in dreams adjure

                                                                      in life be wary

                                                                  live life in light

                                                             be sure that if life lived well

                                                          the snake will not be

                                                     a danger to you.

                                                    For your master will see

                                                      you defeat all its aims

                                                        even if bruised

                                                            your heal will be.

      What a beautiful poem. The one thing we all must fear is a death to our godly spirit. Our flesh holds no importance to either God or satan.

      Brother Dave.
