An Unlikely Friend MAG

May 7, 2010

In the trees
Hung an oval-shaped figure
A cozy home
For a tiny yet deadly friend

Tempting to approach at first
I had learned my lesson then,
The honey dripped
To the bottom of the grass

The fuzzy
Black and yellow friends
Left their “sweet” home
As they buzzed to me

Knowing the weakness
I ran to safety
As if they would
Stab me to death

Through all the excitement
Someone called me
My good-bye is what was said
To my tiny yet deadly friend

This was such an amazing piece. I love how you wrote about your biggest fear for it comes from the heart and it really came out in this piece of work!
