for i have failed you

forgive me my lady for I have failed you

for I have done the most unthinkable thing

I have sucked the venom out of a viper 

And now I am blue

so forgive me my lady for I have failed you

like a male bird not finding a mate in spring

so tell me princess tell me what I must do to make you forgive me

    Thanks MARI for an intriguing poem ! Sucking venom from vipers can be lethal and turning blue is the first sign. I was trained into how to such venom from form a person ~ if they were so inflicted ! Thankfully i have never had to put it into practice ~ but would for you of course ! Yours BRIAN (UK)
