Well, what do you know? I read this poem and think of those being consumed by diabetes as they lose limbs to vascular issues in the lower extremities. This is sad, but makes it where the diabetes is the snake as it consumes the person. Tomorrow is my 45th birthday, and I cannot think of a better way to spend my morning! I was never a really poem kinda girl but my friend got me reading his books and dare i say he is my inspiration! I am now winning poem contest and one of my poems is going to be sold in a book nation wide!

Perhaps you have acquired a new love interest this February, and you want to show them that you are a learned individual. Have an old flame? Never a better time than the present to make them fall in love with you again through academic debate. Maybe you are still looking for your better half, a snuggle buddy. Flexing your brain muscle is the best way to get their attention.
As a childhood Shel Silverstein fanatic, his poems have always had a special place in my heart. Why, I wonder, does this poem have to be only for children? By picking a nostalgia-packed poem, it is guaranteed that your lover will appreciate your getting in touch with your softer, warmer side. You can use this as an opportunity to discuss your childhood, like how your mother would read this book to you after you wet the bed Feel free to shed a few tears here, they will feel obligated to stay and listen to you.
Next, follow the emotional beginning with a one-two punch of academic jargon and never before discovered insights. Carry on about the passing of time, akin to the progression of this metaphorical snake. Fear not! Simply add in a bunch of vocabulary!
Drop phrases like anaphora repetition of a word or words at the beginning of two or more successive verses, clauses, or sentences , apostrophe an address to an absent or imaginary person and litotes understatement for rhetorical effect. Lastly, if all else fails, you can always bring up the fact that Shel Silverstein also wrote erotic plays. In conclusion, dear readers, go out and let Shel and I help you win the love you deserve. Well, what do you know?
