Poem with an explanation: Searching

Searching for something interesting,
dragonflies wouldn’t sit still,
went to garden,
saw a snake,

RUN AWAY!!!

 

This poem is actually true, but is also meant to be silly.  In an effort to find a photograph to inspire poetry, this event occurred, and later seemed as if it would make a nice poem with an explanation.

Other than the explanation above, the poem also has a form.  The first two lines have four words each, the next two lines have three words each, and the last line has two words.  Also, for the first four lines, the length of the lines decreases from the first to the fourth.
