To a wasp

Oh dreaded parasitic predator,
I yield to your flitting whim
and unannounced intrusion.

Innocently productive,
you carry on your quest,
unprovoked and unassuming.

But for your merited renown,
I take preemptive action
testifying to my regard.

The sport of a cautious hunt
prompts instinct and evasion,
no match for a well-aimed swat.

And with your final writhing twitch
I find a kind of sovereign triumph
in my gleeful, gloating grin.

    Should I call this a new form: dramatic satire. It is efficiently wrought with genius and humor, reflected from the self. Thvia, my friend, I enjoyed the time I spent reading more of your work today, may God bless you.

    Poor wasp - but, he should have thought twice before messing with you. LOL Your poem put the same grin on my face as I imagine on yours having triumphed over this pest. I once had a severe allergic reaction to a wasp sting - so I applaud your "well-aimed swat". Death to the twat! Joe

    Loved the last stanza there. I used to wait for the bumblebees to come to my little wading pool when I was a kid and then i"d drown them if they landed on the water. Payback for the times their family members had stung me. haha. LUv, Andrea
