A Serpent Charmed

The serpent was surprised
Her poison had been milked
The charmer was up to no good

Swayed by the flute
The master hypnotiser
Herself in a trance

Her impotent fangs
Matched his toothless grin
Once fearsome, venomous
The serpent is now a golden goose

But nature recompenses
It wasn’t long before
She became deaf
Immune to his tunes
Finally he set her free

(sometimes you have to lose, in order to gain)
