A Story…

A woman was walking down a road, and she came upon a badly injured snake, a variety she knew was poisonous; but she knew if she left it it would likely die.  So she took it home, made it a nest, cleaned its wounds, fed it and gave it water.  The snake slowly began to recover and she actually started to really care for the snake.  Every day he got stronger and they developed a friendship (this is a story, so snakes can talk!).  He was almost fully recovered when the woman came to check on him, and he lunged at her and bit her in her arm injecting his poisonous venom.  She was stunned.  “How could you do that?, she asked.  I took you in, I took care of you, I cleaned your wounds, I saved your life”.  “What did you expect?, he replied.  “I’m a snake”.
