Sid and Sam

Sid and Sam

Sid was the slitheriest of snakes, he could slide down a tree in the speediest of shakes..right from the very top all the way to the floor, but today he couldn’t move coz his tail was sore.. only yesterday Sid was wandering free having races with his best friend Sam zooming up the tallest tree..

Sid and Sam loved having racing competitions, they would zig zag to the very top of the tree from their starting positions, now nine times out of ten Sid would win his game, but then again he was leaner than his fat friend, what a shame.. but Sam was an Anaconda and much thicker than Sid who was a skinny Barbados thread snake, you couldn’t see him when he slid.. now today of all days the two long snakey mates had arranged to have a race, tho this was the many of lots of dates

Sid didn’t like to be beat and he had told Sam about his sore tail that he hurt when he was coiled up on an old rusty nail, poor old Sid but then he had a brilliant idea, so he shouted on Mick the Monkey who was sitting pruning very near, Mick the Baboon liked Sid alot and as soon as he heard his yell well he was there in a shot.. Sam was late for this very important date, they had said that the first to be at the top of the tallest tree at eight was great and Sid wasn’t going to wait..

Mick soon saw that his good old chum Sid was a wreck so just as Sid had hoped, he wrapped him around his Baboon neck.. then with gusto and speed Mick jumped up from limb to limb, he adored a good workout and this tall tree was his gym.. so as rapid as a rocket racing up thru the sky, the two cheeky chums reached to the top in a blink of an eye..infact by five past eight Sid was perched on the very top when Sam joined him ten minutes later and his jaws did drop

What a great snake story! 

You narrated the story well. I could see the two snakes slithering around. Giving the snakes names was also well done. 

Thanks for sharing your poem. 

I think it could use some light touches with editing (but not many). I'm sure you know what areas may need some fine tuning. 

Great job!
