A Gracious Decline

So what would one do with a snark if one found one
a-swimming along in a pool of bombast
Would one wait ‘till the paper fish surfaces truly
or trust in one’s lessons learned deep in the past

Why is it that snarks prefer traveling sideways
you’d think a spurt foreword would be a relief
It must be some pleasure derived from the poking
from handing out needles and cross purpose grief

“Do snarks make good pets?” I once heard a man asking
“They seem rather harmless in spite of their claws.”
“I’d rather avoid them” I answered covertly
“as any attention appears as applause.”
