[tanka]

“Here’s to you, Eve, dear,
and here’s to epidural.”
“To motherhood, Eve.”
At me they threw an apple.
Ask them why. I’m just a snake.

 
(c) 2013- Z for short.

Prompt: Write a tanka, a 5-line poem with the syllable pattern 5-7-5-7-7.
The two final 7-syllable lines should have an unexpected twist.
