Jackal Versus Jackass

Jackal Versus Jackass

A Poem by Miss Marlette
"

Anti-sycophancy

"
I’d rather be a Jackal
laughing away in the grass
Not a sneaky, snarky snake
Curled up inside some a*s

Hissing from the shadows
a small, impotent male
Spitting piss weak venom
On a potent, killer gale

For the Jackal is tenacious
a cutting, tearing omnivore
Ripping apart the heart
of a two-bit vegan w***e

And all the rattling snakes
and butthole clinging vipers
Can never pierce the breast
of a trueborn Jackal sniper

So, I’d rather be a Jackal
laughing away in the grass
Not a sneaky, snarky snake
Curled up inside some a*s

Please share the email of this Nobel Laureate! I'd be happy to share some of my efforts with them for perusal! Your author's notes are always inventive and good for a chuckle. As for the poem? I have seen Jackals up close and their rather slender size and shape belies their ferocious attitude to prey. They do indeed hide in the grass before pouncing and tearing their victims to shreds. And I agree.....I never liked snakes. Too slithery and sly for my liking. Fine rhyme and meter here, Miss Marlette. 💛

Verse 4. Sniper. Brilliant work, portraying the Jackal as a lone, merciless sniper. Funtastic.

Some lucky people must be shitting snakes lmao. Why do we need sycophancy? Is it survival of the fittest and shittiest? Something more crooked than the human DNA.

Very fresh imagery of a snake curled up in an a*s. Imagine the stink. Holy golly moly.

"A sneaky, snarly snake/Curled up inside some a*s." Sounds like hemorrhoids on steroids.
