Summary
Poppy, a bearded Bayou-dwelling African American grandfather, regales a small boy with a tale that illuminates the issues arising when two creatures who are predisposed by culture to distrust one another act antithetically to that inclination. After Poppy accidentally runs over Snake, Snake talks Poppy into making amends by taking him home and then pretends to become Poppy's friend. However, a snake is, after all, a snake, and eventually he acts on his nature and bites Poppy. For his part, Poppy is prepared, as any experienced swamp-dwelling human would be, for this likely possibility
