I had a yen for home grown peach And found but one that I could reach. I picked and took a bite at once To taste of its sweet succulence. Then looking fat and fully fed An earwig raised his ugly head; And looking me straight in the eye Dared me that next sweet bite to try. I very calmly took his dare, Next time I looked, he wasn’t there. No lowly insect takes my peach; The only one that I could reach.

Hon, you had me laughing out loud. This is brilliant! I'm short and can relate to being able to reach only one peach. Keep those insects away and enjoy the bounty you reap. Congratulations on your win! Love, carolyn

Well I really didn't eat him. But I didn't say I did either. So I didn't lie. Thanks for commenting. Love, Joyce
