Fitful nights after snake’s visit

Fitful nights after snake’s visit (a Haiku)

After the baby snake’s visit to the female dorm, some endured fitful nights!

In the jungle deep 
the moon's behind trees’ branches 
listen to the night! 

Hoot, hoot, the owls cried 
croak, croak, frogs orchestrated 
don’t wake up the night! 

Beds creaked, torchlights on. 
‘Follow me to the loo please! 
can't hold on longer!’
