Consorting With A Snake

You turned out to be
just an ordinary snake,
despite your colossal length
& preenful styling.
You took care of any rats
who had the nerve to come calling,
never brought brothers around
expecting me to entertain them.
Once I figured out
you had no plans to poison me,
I rather liked having you around.
