Pituophis catenifer catenifer ~ Sept 17, 2012

El Gopheristador


Introducing the King of the Hill
Dirty Harry in a snakeskin suit
 He's the long silent type
A 44" magnum dressed to kill

He patrols the garden
With silent aplomb
When you got jaws
Don't need no stinkin' gun

We once saw a gopher
Standing tall at his door
Spit a hiss at Harry
Like he's gonna settle a score
I wonder if he thunk
"Do I feel lucky?"
Harry with a flick of his tongue
"Well do ya punk?"

The poor stupid varmint
Was in way over his head
His next stop was a slow ride
Down one dark tunnel bed

Our only complaint
And it's really quite meek
Is that our ole pal Harry
Only eats once a week
