What to Do About Molly?

She brought a snake inside for me,
displayed her newest prize to see.
I cringed but knew it should not be
inside my home so grabbed a broom
and swept it out and cleared the room.

I have to find a gentle way
to let her know if she will stay,
no more these critters can she slay
and tote inside for praise, reward.
I've closed the door and now she's bored.

I should evict in daytime hours
then she could nap beneath green bowers
and sometimes hide from raindrop showers.
At night, sans prey, I'd welcome her
inside, with love, I'd stroke her fur.
