Sweet Things

Why is sweetness a target for the buggiest frights?
Sweets do attract the sweet but
honey can come with a sting.
You see, the dern ants are in the honey jar
so I had to throw out the thing!

Why is it you can’t have anything sweet without ants?
You know, I’ve never seen a nose on an ant, have you?
The sweet ones don’t run around with signs on there backs.
Do they?
Seems the buggy ones always win 
or foul the honey.

Why is sweetness a target for the buggiest frights?
Children should be able to eat sweets from anyone.
But, they can’t. There’s always a nut job somewhere.
Perhaps, sweet things should evolve a sting?
You get in the honey jar and you say die of diabetes?
Unless, the sweet thing gives you the auntie dote.

Sweets do attract sweet but 
at least the honey bee HAS a sting!
Things would stay sweet a lot longer without coocoonuts!

Becarefull NOT to let ants in the honey jar,’ll have to throw it ALL out!

    I really picked up on the excellent perception, and presentation on this one Debbie! At least, eventually, our babies do have a sting in the "hind" end! Too bad though, it's not in the front end of the crime! CONGRATULATIONS ON FEATURED POEM! BLESSING, MOSES!

    Too much to think about it, Deborah. " [...]I’ve never seen a nose on an ant, have you?" ...diverting...and this one: "Perhaps, sweet things should evolve a sting?"... are you talking about...or you're talking about... : ) ...I love your "coocoonuts" Lovely, intriguing, and engaging metaphor-poem. Ruben.
