Rattlesnake Preacher

I’ve never really known

A rattlesnake preacher

No doubt if I had

They would have scared the %#*!

Out of me

Truthfully, just the thought of them

Scares me a little

But also intrigues me

What passionate faith they must have

No I do not believe a person

Has to grab hold of a deadly live snake

To prove they are filled

With the Holy Spirit

But I have to admit

There have been days in my life

That I wish I had

The passionate faith it takes

To grab a live rattlesnake by the tail


If I had had that kind of faith

I could have saved my son

From drugs and jail

E.A. Fussell
