The Staple Remover | Brendan Leonard

Its skull, a fulcrum of devastation and power.
White scales on head, silver fangs glistening in the light,
The rest hidden underground.
Fangs ready for attack.
The metal mice
Hold together papers.

This venomous creature sits calmly on a desk
Full from feasting, bloated stomach at the point of bursting
A new species of snake, dangerous to all surroundings.
The no-legged beast lives
In solitude,
Freely roaming wherever it pleases.
The scientific name: “Staplerus Removerus,” 
A noble name for a malicious being.
