of Big Santa Anita Canyon

There’s a rattlesnake in my garden

I don't know what to do

It seems that he belongs there

But I belong there too

I ponder... Should I throw a rock

And chase the snake away

Or take a chance that he won't bite

Assuming I'm his prey

The latter seems quite risky

Too great a chance to take

For after all is said and done

He is... a rattlesnake
