Picnics

How irritating a swarm of gnats
Flying inches from our eyes
As we try to enjoy a picnic lunch
We share with pesky flies
Mosquitoes also grab a bite
From veined mother lodes down deep
Leaving welts that last all night
And rob us of our sleep
Finally bees and ants show up
To see what they can score
That's why I have given up
And don't picnic anymore

    Lol, had to chuckle over this. It sounds too funny, Jon. I just have a vision of you being chased by these pests. I know what it feels like being bitten as I am having two swelling bites on my arms. I hope they are not spiders'. Yike!

    I'm with you, Jon. I much prefer to eat where the bugs aren't eating me! I enjoyed reading your work. Love, Kim
