Ode to a Movie I'll Never See...

September 12th, 2006 (09:37 pm)

I'm not consciously scared of snakes, and I have nothing against Snakes on a Plane - I just have no interest in it. This is something I thought up while reading some of the buzz around it, with apologies to Theodore Geisel.

* * * * * * * * * *

I do not like snakes on a plane,
I do not like snakes on a train.
I do not like them on a boat,
I do not like them near my coat.

They make me scream, they make me shout
They make me squirm and gross me out
Whoever thought up all this hooey
I do not like snakes in my movies!

I will not take a window seat
If I think they're beneath my feet.
Go stow your bag, lock up your table
'Cause this here's one hell of a fable.

It may be that the word's gone far
It may be SLJ's the star
But surely this is just a jest
To see who can scare you the best.

I've seen them twist throughout the loam
Some say they can turn you to stone.
But if they're in the cargo hold
Won't they slow down 'cause of the cold?

...uh, okay, now I'm stuck. %^S
