Fandangos flash fiction challenge #154

Welcome to Fandangos Flash Fiction Challenge. Each week I will be posting a photo I grab off the internet and challenging bloggers to write a flash fiction piece or a poem inspired by the photo. There are no style or word limits.

The photo below was provided by fellow blogger Deb @ Nope, Not Pam. Thanks, Deb

For the visually challenged writer, the photo shows a man walking on a paved path at a park holding a snake that is draped over his shoulders.

All the children in the park ran up to the man with the snake.
Can we pet it? They asked?
The man said they could. But I need you all to form a line, this snake is tame, but you shouldnt raise your voices when your near to it.
It gets frightened easily!
As the kids formed a line, parents started taking out their phones and cameras to snap photos of their little ones holding and petting the snake.
The snakes owner decided there and then that he was going to make this a regular thing.
I can have an animal road show! He thought.
I have enough pets to do it!
