but wait, who’s this?

it is a treat, indeed it is a pleasure
to see you all, you may recall
we buried us some treasure
you’d best not though
cuz you don’t know
i’ve wiped your memories
and that would leave the treasure all for me

but wait, who’s this?
i hear a prolonged hiss
a serpent’s slither…
who’s coming hither?
so big he makes the whole earth shake…
what good is treasure to a snake?

the apple wasn’t good enough for you?

this verse did not exist before the Daily prompt – pleasure
and it’s buried with the Daily prompt – treasure – while i work on something new
