The Python Under My Pillow


The python under my pillow
has been there twice before.
He thinks he’s good at hiding
But boy, can this guy snore.

He lies there so serenely
In a state of sweet repose.
I could get some shut eye, too
If this snake could blow his nose.

  1. Context and cultural differences: I sent this poem to several boys my husband and I sponsor through ChildFund International. I have to send an apology to the Ugandan youngster who took it seriously. “The Python Under My Pillow” was meant to give him a chuckle, not a nightmare.
