I am an artist bound only for the poet's glory....But only achieve half of the success that my dreams aspire to find, And to what do the whispers tell me of this failure...To what end to they haunt my nightmares...my eternal dark dreams...

Dreadful serpent crawls in the darkest of slums, who preys on the weak and preys on the numb.

Who even fills the modern man with fearful howls, whose thirst for blood and chaos cannot be quenched easily and knows no bound.

Whose hunger for agony and dread, has made it's own soul crumbled and dead.

Whose venom can kill thousands in a single drop, but for the dreadful serpent this isn't enough.

Who descended from Cain the father of murder, which is why it is called the beast of burden.

Dreadful serpent skin black as night, oh woe for the victim of your reaping bite.

This a half religious, half nature poem. the snake i speak of is the black mamba, 5th venomous snake in the world.
