“ The Wasp ” ~ hymenoptera or human ~


I’ve known wasps

Since childhood,


Held be human,

Sting they would,

If one did cross

Upon their stood,

Or in school’s hood,

One did presume

To set the pace,

Thus take the lead

And so displace

In their prized race,

These hymenoptera

Said bête noire wasp,

Thought per se human!

  1. Very good poetry subjects. Lucky me I discovered your web site by chance. I’ve saved it for later!

    • Did the wasp sting so as to impose silence, and the inability to voice your opinion in writing ? Hard for me to imagine this short poem had so much power. JJF
