Love as a Yellow-Bellied Racer
The striped Whipsnake - Masticophus Taciviatus
Unlike the Cape Whipsnake - Masticophus Aurigulus
Which lives in California
Where Ella lived
She lived in Sonora, like the Masticophus Bileatus,
With olive eyes
And blue-brown hair
And she loved someone who, like the Coluber Constrictus.
Loved open woodland
Foot-hilled mountains and Ella
But she didn't know
About Coluber Constrictus
(Though to be fair Neither did he)
Coluber Constrictus is also known as
the Western Yellow-Bellied Racer.
And he, like all his kind,
Would run away.
