The snake and the poison

The snake and the poison
The claws and the scars
The fire and the burn

Swift!

But not really

Painful!

But not really

The poison
Scars
Burns
Fading,

Gone,
But not really

Deep, deep,
Deep! They are found
Twirling and growing and infecting,
Infecting

Oh! But a cure!
Just one,

But not really
