Symbolism is a marvelous thing. It can serve as a palette for a portrait to create images in the mind. However, it is still up to the individual to discern those images.

When we talk of serpents or snakes, it immediately conjures mind pics of satan , demons and Halloween spook shows. It could bring to mind the Christian snake dancing sects. Fear of poisoning, a slow painful death pop up as well.

On the other hand, snakes are symbols of wisdom. Stealth and sudden attack come into the picture too.

So symbolism is as always, a two way street.

Thus, we come to those who are duplicitous. They bite the hand that feeds them. Like the song where the lady nurses the sick snake back to health then it bites and kills her, so are those who feign patriotism then do all they can to destroy Freedom from within.

Of course, the snakes are easy to spot. It's the wolves in sheep's clothing you gotta discern and watch.

And the objet d'arte (hehehe) of this missive is just that. Be picky and stealthy and be a bigger snake than the others.

Swallow them whole. Bit by bit

Reconstruct the deconstruct.

Good luck.
