They Bought a Snake

“They Bought a Snake” a poem by Carrie Jones
A poem about family and politics?

They bought a snake,

Without me saying okay

Because though I have wanted

Another dog for years, they wanted a snake.

They don’t care that the thought

Of mice dying in a predator’s

Jaws in my house freaks me out.
