Watching Megasnake




How did he come to Earth?
You need to get a weapon, dude.
The heart of the snake,
the megasnake
eats peoples’ heads
at the carnival.
He unsheaths a warrior sword,
1/10th the size
do not fear the large snake.
George Lopez versus megasnake.
Let’s cut him up from the inside.
Is it snake day yet?
You took a picture of him,
but did not rock it.
You ain’t got no family, dog.
