Don't push your luck


Out walking in the forest, just to give his wife a break. He leaned on his cane over rough terrain and found a rattle snake. Its tail began a shakin' as it coiled up like a spring. And the path to take for quick escape had been washed out by the rain.

He knew that he was cornered so he said a little prayer. He clutched his cane and braced for pain and wished his wife was there. But it didn't move a muscle, except the rattler on its tail. And soon even that began to relax as it stretched out like a rail.

When his face regained its color, he heard his stomach groan. He thought of the snake and the meal it would make and loaded his cane for the blow. But it was waiting patiently for the greedy man to act. When the timing was right it delivered its bite and the morning soon turned black.
