Chapter 8

As soon as the snake hissed
A dog barked, screaming fear
Lucy jumped in Wonda’s arms
Wonda grabbed the beast by its ear
She gave it a kiss
The serpent dauntingly stared
As the beast quieted down
Ran back to the dark

‘Tell me Wonda,
How you possess such strength’
‘First you tell me why of all beasts;
Only you can speak at such length’
