Wasp's Daring

  • Succor was the cradle,
  • diligence the wasp
  • who sat not on wax
  • but atop wood near a box,
  • licking the sweet from a popsicle
  • purchased from the vehicle.
  • Long from comfort
  • (the willow her home)
  • least thought she of "risk."
  • Her body three dollops,
  • she hunted the ant,
  • decisive her rant,
  • not heeding the child.
  • Draw, color, holler--
  • not "crayon"
  • nor "cinnamon"
  • not "pertain"
  • nor “foam”
  • did dictionary reveal,
  • but baby mother smash flee.
