  6. Some dig in,
    remaining upright,
    despite the flow;

    Some
    practical types,
    pick and choose
    where to fall,
    and
    where to flow,
    sometimes,
    with friends,
    sometimes,
    remaining
    smartly inert;

    And some,
    with chequered lives,
    and a longish reach,
    glide smoothly
    through it all,
    sinusoidal moves,
    a push here,
    a drag there,
    a tail lash
    at obstacles,
    but with
    a face above
    water
    at all times.

    We call them politicians.

  7. I do not love snakes. My home state of Georgia has an abundance of them. We grew up swimming in the Chattahoochee River, which separated us from Alabama, and there were water mocassins
    ( poisonous )in some areas. We even have rattlesnakes - and a rattlesnake roundup every year in one part of Georgia. The very poisonous coral snake is also native to Georgia.
