Snake Hissstory

Sammy Snake thought history cool,
It was his favorite class in school.
He loved what happened long ago.
One special story thrilled him so.

The tale where man and snake unite
In that most famous freedom fight.
When both agreed on one solution
The great American Revolution.

That he could be an astronaut.
But as his little snake heart yearned,
His applications were returned....

A polka dress without its dots?

And here I offer you a bunch.
