Snakes

Poisonous people are infectious
Like snakes that steal and suck happiness away
And the would turns septic
Spreading like the chill of death through your veins
A cheerful smile and bouncing voice
Turns to a drooping moss mustache
In less than a minute
Cracks fissure over cheeks and brow
Skin turns into bark and organs petrify
Tapped and sapped like a maple tree
But I am not
Why do you do this?
You are taking this the wrong way!
And a line of flames erupts
That only heated words can be tossed over
They say you should just avoid toxic task force
Whose heavy boots stomp you down
But tell me
What do you do when it is family?
