A Short Life

Around and around 
buzzing 
churrng in the sky
Darting here, there
eluding hands, eyes
fluttering 
going everywhere
Hovering as a cloud
invited nowhere
Just an insect
killing time
looking for an arm
Meals for babes 
nourishment wine
Options plenty
Pooping time
Quickly I see
running near me
splat, curse that swatter that killed me
