The Willful Wasp

He circled around her,
observing her nature –
breathing in her perfume.

He caressed her petals,
complimented her soft sepals –
yet she remained unmoved.

Go away, she whispered.
Determined and proud, he lingered-
trying to change her mood.

Beautiful flower, it’s fate
that dictates I’m to pollinate

Not even swayed by him a little,
she loaded her pistil
and shot him clear through.

Stupid wasp, you should have listened!
Were those her tears that glistened,
or were they morning dew?

Spitting up nectar,
He told her before expiring,
A wasp can’t help but love a flower –
even one as brutal as you.
