THE VIPER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Yet another great truth I record in my verse
Last Line: But after the second you die.
Alternate Author Name(s): Belloc, Joseph Hilaire Pierre Rene
Subject(s): Snakes; Serpents; Vipers


Yet another great truth I record in my verse,
That some Vipers are venomous, some the reverse;
A fact you may prove if you try,
By procuring two Vipers, and letting them bite;
With the first you are only the worse for a fright.
But after the second you die.
