Do not be surprised by the snake coiled and hissing in your cereal cupboard, it only wants your lucky charms. Charms that you’ve been developing of late, it’s true. Memorized poems, latin proverbs, snatches of love songs, general grandiloquence. A shovel will cut the snake up nicely. However, you suspect, but do not know (a common problem among believers) that the snake symbolizes pervasion, and also that it was the snake itself that developed the charms… as if the charms had one use only: to bring you to the snake. Not so lucky charms after all? The cereal bits are not interesting, they seem even, rather healthy. But the marshmallows are so aloof and mysterious, they make all your girlfriends cry.
