Not a Prayer Against the Mantis

Good Lord, Mama Mantis creeps up behind and takes a nip that stings sharp before I fall, supposedly dead. Fakeout! I still have my teeth and I hear the words, "Bite me! Wanting to give her a nip, Alexa B.'s bit! *Entry for Linda’s “Bite Me” contest. written by Carolyn Devonshire
