Invader

Crumbs seductively line
Corian countertops –
abundance for flies,
I understand

It’s a trap!
I’d warn, but
buzz is not a language
familiar to my tongue

temper unsuited
to accommodating pests –
we navigate an end
to the ensuing discomfort

fly doomed,
my senses rattled
effort now exerted
to vanquish crumbs.

(Inspired by the daily prompts of Fandango (temper), Daily Addictions (Abundant), and Ragtag (navigate). Thanks for stopping by.)

  1. Well put this dilemma. I try to capture ants and throw them out the front door rather than kill them but I also have images of bygone kitchens with flypaper dangling. I think my sensibilities have developed as I age, but I have no idea how to solve the problem of flies!
