Snake Plant Indeed!

By Elton Camp
Its sharp, long and pointed
As snake plant anointed
Its a name meant not to annoy
Not called that when I was a boy
Likely, many others are the same
Call this plant by another name
One whose praises have been sung
Its called mother-in-law tongue

Tongue as long as can be
Quite sharp on the tip
Often used by her to rip
Both get hard and cold
As the owner grows old
Use snake if you will
Its m-i-l tongue still
