Living Vivid

The orange flowers attract bumble bees Yellow and black bees stung my red knees Dance round flailing and wailing crimson legs Devilish dimples arose; scratch pegs Several amber ants stung white toes

Love it! I'm a bizarre individual who doesn't feel it when bees or wasps sting, at least not at first. After ending up with a calcium lump from one I wonder whether I'd be better off with the initial pain.

Living in the country, I'm always on the lookout for those nasty little creatures! My son once was stung by a bee on the lip and his face became unrecognizable! Great read... hugs, Jack

Funny and painful at the same time. I hate those fire ants. Should do well in the contest.
