To pluck

The other day I came across a snake

and I laughed as I jumped out of the way
frighted by it’s coiled hisssss
why did I laugh? My life

at a mere lung of this rattler
isn’t funny, is it?

The snake drew closer

It’s not ‘funny’, it’s plucky the snake mocked
What’s pluck? I asked
Like ‘I plucked the fruit from a tree.’
Is it funny?
You try it
and tell me.
