The snake in the grass gets bad press,
He isn’t always looking to start a mess.
He slithers, and he slides all day long,
Without ever doing one thing wrong.
The propaganda machine slanders his name,
But if you leave him alone, he is quite tame.
He doesn’t want to bother you,
He’s just looking to eat a rat or two.
Build your case, find the clues,
But I think his rep is fake news!
