Who By Belly Go

Serpents are among us
     who more than bite.
Serpents twist the truth
     like their many coils.
Serpents say hold me,
     then hug us to death.
Serpents give us drink
     poisoning our souls.
Why do we still listen
     to forked tongues?
Why do we still follow
     those who by belly go?

Genesis 3:14-15
Jeremiah 8:17
