The Herpetologist


Driving down a road 

Scanning every detail. 

Maybe we'll spot a toad 

or even something with a tail. 


We'll hike through the forest 

or find ourselves in the Amazon.

Unable to rest, 

because the excitement keeps catching on. 


A bite or two

is no big deal,

as long as no venom is spew.

Only a rattle will reveal.
