A Snake Hunter

by Ellen Bailey

A snake hunter hunting snakes just for fun
Thinks, "What will I do if I find one?"
He thinks to himself, "I'll climb a tree"
But snakes can climb faster than he

A snake hunter hunting snakes just for fun
Searching and hoping he'll find some
If he finds a slithering copperhead
He vows to bludgeon until it's dead

A snake hunter hunting snakes just for fun
Found some snakes basking in the sun
A snake began to circle his walking stick
A snake hunter hunting snakes just quit
