Insects

by Jemia de Blondeville   Jan 3, 2021


A red firey eye opens
Then another
And began to spread its gaze
Around its surroundings
It grunted a few times
Then opened its jaws
And yawned
Exposing the rotten tongue
Within its wide
And cavernous mouth
Gazing at a reflection
It thought itself
A fine looking beast
Another entered the cave
Carefully, and cautiously
Addressed the beast
"Mister President!"
"You gotta move out soon!"
The President eyed this intruder
With annoyance, and contempt
Then decided to eat him
"that's what us insects do, right?"
"Yes mister President" said a fly on the wall

    Does a beast think of itself as such? Do they act like one, sure they do. Will a bully demand respect? Yes, but this is as hollow as respect given "yes mister President"

    Jemia, nice topical piece written in a creative way.

      thank you, and sometimes a hollow respect is given out of fear, of a multitude of potential circumstances, although not many would result in being eaten! :)
