Along with India, Britain and France
If you don’t believe me, just take a glance.
But, despite the rod and serpent confusion
We all are amazed by the allusion.
How a creature known for destruction –
Is used to symbolize healing instruction.
You see – the characteristic of the snake
The shedding of skin, make no mistake
Resembles the transition of sickness to cure
To prolong our lives and help us endure.
The ailments of life along the way
To preserve our body’s DNA.
Another symbol of a snake
An ouroboros, a circle makes
Represents the immortality –
The circle of life, and infinity.
