The snake’s prey Slithering snakes sliding along  Wriggle forwards, body long  Zig zag waves along the caves  Looking for its prey    Eyes shining silently brood  Oval shapes looking for food  Glass beads sees, busy like bees,  The mouse that is his prey    Tongue slides out to test the air  Moving all around his lair  Flicking out, the air to scout,  As he targets his busy prey    Moving fast to catch his lunch  Fangs sinking, hear a crunch  Jaws wide for food to slide  As he swallows down his prey  © Gail Thompson 2011
