The Pesky Blue Bug

blue bug 2 petrified forest april 14

Blue bug

pretty as can be

buzzing around the grill

annoying to me


He is a pest

trying to taste my food

trying to swat him

food smells so good


I miss him

as he flies away

coming back again

trying to stay


The grill is hot

the pest finds a spot

difficult to reach

he lands on my pot


I swat him again

he flies away

the food almost ready

he is determined to stay


One final time

dancing as I swat

he dives for the food

a prize that he got


He flies away

taking his prize

the bug won the day

there is smoke in my eyes
