Playing with Power

Cold scaly skin slithering through the grass
Out to borrow warmth and consume prey
A woman is in the distance
Free and unaware
Her liberty is powerful
The snake is also a beautiful creation
Just as beautiful as she
She should have to work for her provisions too
She should come to know her truth and my truth
And her limitations
It’s not fair if she doesn’t
She’s too powerful if she doesn’t
She must be reigned in
She must be controlled
Then I can have a chance of ruling
My way is better anyway
Does my insatiable self righteousness starve both you and me?
Come let us prey
