An Anaconda Called Wanda.

Jimmy had an Anaconda they really were such friends
Through the streets they’d often wander, true friendship never ends.
Wanda was the reptile’s name, thirty feet, almost five hundred pounds
She never bit and was so tame their friendship knew no bounds.

They used to bath together In Jim’s mum’s massive hot tub
It seemed to take forever giving Wanda’s back a scrub.
The pair would listen every night to stories from Jim’s mummy
Wanda loved “The Jungle Book”, as she curled round Jimmy’s tummy.

Through the streets young Jim would run, Wanda slithered with by his side
People thought it was such fun to see old Wanda slide
Crossing roads however was somewhat problematic
Her length took time to get across causing chaos with the traffic.

But best of all was playing in their local park
Swinging in the tree tops it was a proper lark
Coiled in Wanda’s tail Jim would hurtle through the trees
A task that she accomplished with acrobatic ease.

~


The local paper featured them; Jim’s uncle was the Editor
The headline? “Snake eats little boy, do NOT befriend a predator”.

I remember, many years ago, a popular song called "Sneaky Snake" and reading this poem reminded me of that.. this poem also may explain why I don't hang out with snakes or people who sell used cars..

enjoyed much, take care.

Reminded me of the song

"Oh you never smile at a crocodile
Never tip your hat or stop to talk awhile.
Don't be taken in by his crooked grin.
He's only wondering how well you'd fit within his skin"
