A Red Rat Snake
A red rat snake
Has invaded my bathroom
Its rusty camouflage
No match for color vision
Uncrafted beauty
Outshining everything
In the bathroom decor
 catalog
I herd it toward the door
The mirror
That divides our homes
Using all the wiles gained
From that Australian guy
On the television
Firmly
 but gently
Seize it near the tail
Quickly fling it freedomward
Now safe
Against its will
And my home
Diminished
