Obituary of a Moth

Arriving in Spring, on white powdered wings, to the heat of a bulb, if touched it would sting. You bobbed and you weaved, while taking your dings, like a staggering drunk, or fighter in the ring. Then a flash! and a zap! you fell to the ground. Moth knocked out for good, in the 13th round. Moth…4/02/2018 - 4/03/2018. Was hatched, grew wings, headed to the nearest lightbulb, and died. Was a life long member of the Knights of Columbus.
