POISONED HOME

A poisonous snake entered our home

from a far i smelled its toxic foam

but slowly it crawled its way inside

and i knew it was going to create divide

It grew fond of one prey

and yet we watched them get away

because of the prey that was our favourite

we faked our smiles with delight

Days into weeks,months and years

our smiles withered and our sight became clear

we saw its fangs and the snake spit its venom

then the war bore its momentum

We became tired and everyone felt so immobilized

nearly giving up ourselves to disguise

but we hoped for a sign from heaven

for when the snake will perish and we level back our home.
