Big Adventure III

We can learn to be python bounty hunters.
The government would give us a hundred bucks a pop,
and we could sell the meat and skins ourselves,
which would be like a gold mine, only we could call it
“a snake mine.” What could go wrong? If we looked
especially keen while hunting, we could maybe
have a show on the Discovery Channel.
